2 early experiments by Cannonball Adderley – both of which feature him as the main soloists in front of larger backings!

Diz and Roy come together in a nice blend of two traditions – blowing in a relaxed mode that's less of the "battle" you might expect from the title – and more of a friendly exchange of solos, recorded in the open and laidback style of Verve at the time.
