AllMusic Review by

This LP documents the same concert (but a different set) as It Happened One Night. The Dizzy Gillespie Orchestra performs ten selections including several that they never recorded commercially (such as "Relaxin' at Camarillo," "Salt Peanuts," "Hot House" and "Toccata for Trumpet") plus "new" versions of "Cubana Be/Cubana Bop" and "Things to Come." The leader/trumpeter, who is the main soloist throughout, is in particularly fiery form on this very enjoyable (and somewhat historical) set.
