AllMusic Review by

On the second of two Lp's taken from a 1959 tour, the premise looked promising with highlights from a concert featuring the Stan Kenton Orchestra, June Christy and the Four Freshmen. Christy is fine on her three numbers and there are two selections where everyone joins forces effectively ("September Song" and "Walking Shoes"). Unfortunately the Four Freshmen waste their two numbers with some unspeakably bad attempts at comedy and the Kenton band's three features are uneventful, making this a rather disappointing set.
