AllMusic Review by

Battle of the Bands is a rather odd compilation, matching bandleaders Woody Herman and Buddy Rich in an every-other-track notation, briefly skipping through '70s-era recordings by both jazzmen. The music is enjoyable throughout, but the collection makes little sense from an artistic standpoint.
