AllMusic Review by

Singer Banu Gibson does her best during this loose concert appearance (from the 1982 Manassas Jazz Festival) and there a few good moments but the poorly organized jam session has plenty of car wrecks as various horn players (including nine horns on "Swing That Music") consistently crash into each other. Trumpeter Billy Butterfield and clarinetist Johnny Mince are the most notable players in the supporting cast but frankly many of the performances on this LP should not have been released. For much better examples of Banu Gibson's singing, get her Swing Out CDs instead.
