AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

This CD is the second half of Baker's final recording, a rather impressive concert in which the trumpeter was joined (in separate sections) by a symphony orchestra, a big band and a small group with Herb Geller. Highlights include "Look for the Silver Lining," "Sippin' at Bells" and a touching rendition of "My Funny Valentine." Both parts of this memorable performance are highly recommended.
