AllMusic Review by

It may well have been recorded at Tiffany's but one has to remember that this is on the Dressed To Kill label. What does that mean? It means that this is as dodgy a bootleg as can be heard. There are some muffled drum sounds, some reedy, thin piano sounds distorted to the gills, and in the end, one can hear Charlie Parker soloing like crazy. There is no bass on this set -- not that there isn't a bass player, but he can't be heard. There are no credits, no liners of any kind and therefore the hope of this more than unscrupulous record label is that the unsuspecting might be willing to shell out a few bucks for dreck like this. Avoid at all costs.
