"Tyrone" was Larry's nickname for his son, Larry Young III, who was five years old when this was recorded. Other recordings of Tyrone include a version on Larry Coryell's second album, "Basics," from 1968.
This album was the only recording Sam Rivers did with Larry Young, Grant Green, or Elvin Jones. It was Sam's third studio session, and one month later he recorded his first album as a leader, "Fuchsia Swing Song." "Into Somethin'" is also the only full album Sam Rivers played on with organ throughout; Rivers played with Andrew Hill doubling piano and organ on a 1967 Blue Note session first issued on a Mosaic compilation.
October 7, 1940 – March 30, 1978
