AllMusic Review by

For this live concert, trumpeter Randy Sandke directed the New York All-Stars (which also include Dan Barrett on trombone and trumpet, clarinetist Ken Peplowski, Scott Robinson on bass sax, C-melody sax and cornet, pianist Mark Shane, guitaristvocalist Marty Grosz, bassist Linc Milliman and drummer Dave Ratajczak) through 18 songs associated with Bix Beiderbecke. The music is sometimes arranged and programmed loosely in chronological order but essentially this concert gives the talented players an opportunity to jam on such tunes as "Fidgety Fett," "My Pretty Girl," "Riverboat Shuffle," "China Boy" and "At the Jazzband Ball." Everyone is in fine form and on two songs there are actually three trumpets (with Barrett and Robinson joining Sandke). This is fun music that is played with spirit and made available by the German Nagel-Heyer label.
