AllMusic Review by

From the same concert that resulted in the Chiaroscuro LP Live In Concert, this worthy performance (still only available as an out-of-print LP) features the 1981 Ahmad Jamal Trio (consisting of the pianist/leader, bassist Sabu Adeyola and drummer Payton Crossley) stretching out on "Morning of the Carnival" and Chick Corea's "Tones for Joan's Bones." The other three numbers ("One," "Bogata" and "Autumn Leaves") add vibraphonist Gary Burton to the group, and the Burton-Jamal combination works quite well on what was a successful but only one-time collaboration.
