AllMusic Review by

This LP contains performances by trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie with the Dwike Mitchell-Willie Ruff duo taken from five separate concerts spanning the years 1970-85. Gillespie always sounded comfortable with this group which featured Mitchell on piano and Ruff playing bass and occasional French horn. The music (which includes "Blue & Boogie," "Take the 'A' Train" and "Love for Sale") is enjoyable, intimate and swinging.
