This is the first of three Capitol studio sessions with the Davis Nonet, which had long since stopped working as a regular group. Perhaps the group would have been recorded earlier if the American Federation of Musicians recording ban had not been in effect.

"Budo" is Bud Powell's "Hallucinations," recorded for Mercury in 1951. For this session the title had changed to "Budo" and Davis was co-credited as composer.
