AllMusic Review by

This obscure concert features the harmonica virtusoso with an all Japanese rhythm section providing capable support. The fare is mostly standards (except for pianist Tsuoshi Yamamoto's "Shade Of Love"), including a swinging "What Is This Thing Called Love" and a lyrical "Georgia On My Mind." Less successful is "Night Train," which is somewhat marred by the overenthusiastic clapping along of the audience. Overall, this is a good but not essential CD.
