This is another one of Mary Lou Williams' all-female ensemble performances, also titled as: "Mary Lou Williams' Girl Stars." Billy Taylor, Sr. is the only male personnel -- however, he is listed under the female name Bea Taylor (with a side note that he is in fact Billy Taylor, Sr.) Hyams and O'Flynn take turns alternating on the drums and vibraphone.

Bruyninckx notes this session to have taken place on February 26, 1946, and Lord notes it to have taken place on the day before (the 25th).
