AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

This live session from Benny Goodman's 1960 tentet, despite some throwaway vocals by Maria Mashall, finds The King of Swing catching fire a few times, particularly on an extended version of "After You've Gone." With a particularly strong lineup that includes vibraphonist Red Norvo, tenorman Flip Phillips and trumpeter Jack Sheldon, this out-of-print LP features Benny Goodman at his best (even if the swing era had supposedly ended 15 years earlier).
