On September 27, 1955, the group's album, Jazz Young Blood, was recorded at Rudy Van Gelder's Studio in Hackensack, New Jersey with Ola Hanson, trombone; Chuck Lee, piano; jazz great Vinnie Burke, bass; and the legendary Kenny Clarke, drums. In 1956, the quintet left New York's Gale Booking Agency and signed with General Artists Corporation (GAC). This led to an exclusive management contract with Ray Bloch and Associates.
