AllMusic Review by

The previously unissued performances included on this Italian LP were mostly recorded in Europe and add to the legacy of several of their participants. Trumpet-great Dizzy Gillespie jams five tunes with a group of Europeans plus expatriate tenor Don Byas. Altoist Hubert Fol and the rhythm section from the same date perform a fine version of "Everything Happens to Me" and this LP concludes with a Gerry Mulligan-led jam session that teams the baritonist with trumpeter Ruby Braff and tenor-saxophonist Bud Freeman for a fine version of "Rose Room." Nice music, nothing too essential.
