AllMusic Review by

This LP, which is taken from two separate concerts (both held at high schools), has since been succeeded and greatly expanded upon by two CDs. The great baritonist is heard with his quartet (featuring trumpeter Jon Eardley) and with a sextet (which adds the tenor of Zoot Sims and valve-trombonist Bob Brookmeyer). The music is quite enjoyable and consistently swinging.
