AllMusic Review by

More sparkling concert performances come from this excellent Mingus group. Unfortunately, the sound is rather boxy, with a lot of breakup from the cymbals; Mingus's bass sounds OK, though, and Dolphy is well-recorded. Still, the Amsterdam concert, released on Ulysse, or the Paris show on Prestige both sound better than this one. Get this one if you just can't get enough of this group.
