With Meade Lux Lewis and Pete Johnson. 14 of the 18 songs were recorded in September/October '39 at the Hotel Sherman, Chicago for radio broadcast. The remainder are from a late '38 recording at Frank Lyon's home studio. Highlights include Lewis' jive commentary on "Three Little Words" where he addresses fictitious dancers and the notorious landlady at a rent party and the duet on two pianos by Ammons and Lewis on "Saturday Night".
