In a three day period 25th - 27th May in 1965 Dexter Gordon returned from "exile" in Europe to make two jazz albums with Barry Harris (piano), Bob Cranshaw (bass) and Billy Higgins (drums), the powerhouse rhythm trio behind Lee Morgan's 1963 album "The Sidewinder", who appear together with surprising infrequency considering the success of the Lee Morgan album. On the first of those days, joined by Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, the material for "Clubhouse" was recorded. In the second two days, with Bobby Hutcherson replacing Freddie Hubbard in the same quintet, material for the album "Gettin' Around" was recorded in that same long run of sessions. "Clubhouse" remained unreleased until 1979.
