AllMusic Review by

Despite its title, the music on this French Lp is taken from two 1939 radio broadcasts by the Chick Webb Orchestra. Although Webb died in the middle of the year, he plays quite well during the live performances. These instrumentals feature such fine soloists as Taft Jordan and Bobby Stark on trumpets, trombonist Sandy Williams, altoist Hilton Jefferson and tenorman Teddy McRae but this set will be difficult to locate.
