AllMusic Review by

The second of two LPs recorded by the 1958 Benny Goodman Orchestra, live from the Brussels World Fair, is highlighted by "Stealin' Apples," a Gershwin medley, Jimmy Rushing's vocal on "Mr. Five by Five" and a rousing rendition of "One O'Clock Jump." Pianist Roland Hanna is strongest among the supporting cast and Goodman clearly enjoyed having a big band again, even if only for a short time.
