AllMusic Review by

Battle of the Bands is a rather odd compilation, matching bandleaders Gil Evans and Charles Mingus in an every-other-track notation, briefly skipping through Mingus' Tijuana Moods album with odd-numbered tracks given over to Evans. Though the music is enjoyable throughout, the collection makes little sense from an artistic standpoint.
