AllMusic Review by

This collection assembles various live club recordings of the legendary tenor saxophonist Lester Young. Though casual listeners may be disconcerted by the sometimes overpowering crowd noise on these amateur tapes, diehard fans will appreciate the chance to pore over the many examples of Young in full solo flight on cuts like "Perdido," "I Cover the Waterfront," and "Lady Be Good."
