AllMusic Review by

A superior live concert by the 1948 Dizzy Gillespie Big Band, this LP is highlighted by a lengthy version of "'Round Midnight," "Two Bass Hit," "The Afro Cuban Suite" (featuring Chano Pozo on congas) and "Things to Come." Every recording by this shortlived but memorable orchestra (the most innovative big band of 1946-49) is worth acquiring.
