Byrd's first regular group was a quintet that he co-led from 1958 to 1961 with baritone saxophonist Pepper Adams, an ensemble whose hard-driving performances are captured "live" on At the Half Note Cafe. Byrd's 1961 LP Royal Flush marked the Blue Note debut of Hancock, who came to further attention with Byrd's successful 1962 album Free Form, and these albums also featured the first recordings of Hancock's original compositions

Combined now as a two-disc set, Byrd is joined on this live November 11, 1960 session by frequent collaborator Pepper Adams on baritone sax, Duke Pearson on piano (in one of his earliest Blue Note performances), Laymon Jackson on bass and Lex Humphries on drums
