AllMusic Review by

The second of two LP volumes documenting a night in the life of The Jazz Messengers features trumpeter Lee Morgan, tenorman Hank Mobley, pianist Bobby Timmons, bassist Jymie Merritt and drummer/leader Art Blakey in fine form on such material as Randy Weston's "Hi-Fly" and Ray Bryant's "Chicken An' Dumplins." The music is funky hard bop at its best and, although this particular edition of The Jazz Messengers was not the most acclaimed, it was certainly a strong group.
