AllMusic Review by

The third of five LPs taken from Benny Goodman's very successful six-month stay at the Congress Hotel in Chicago is, like the other four, well-recorded, filled with strong clarinet solos and Helen Ward vocals, and focuses on the tight and clean-sounding ensembles. Taken from two broadcasts, this set (which is highlighted by "Big John Special," "Goody, Goody" and "Diga Diga Doo") is excellent.
