Recorded at the same show that produced his Jazz Organ Summit live album with Johnny "Hammond" Smith, Dr. Lonnie Smith and Jimmy McGriff, this is the full set, recorded live in Chicago on his birthday. Backed by a hard swinging quintet including Bob Devos on guitar, Greg Rockingham on drums, Eric Anderson on tenor sax and Jim Rotundi on trumpet, Earland swings through a set that includes great renditions of his "Black Talk," "The Burner's Magic" and closes with a swinging version of Pat Upton's "More Today than Yesterday." One burning set by a true master of the B-3. Highly recommended.
