"This collection ranks along side the many great jazz concert events such as Jazz At The Philharmonic, The Newport Jazz Festival and Jazz At Carnagie Hall. Boasting such legends as Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, Dexter Gordon, Charles Mingus, Dave Brubeck and more. And, on the vocal side you get Billie Holiday, Carmen McRea, Shirley Horn, Sara Vaughan and Joe Williams. One of the brightest moments to be heard here is the spontainous improvisation by Dave Brubeck during his performance of For All We Know. As an unexpected plane flew overhead, Brubeck responds with the opening bars of the US Air Force Theme, "Off We Go Into The Wild Blue Yonder..."All in all you'd be hard pressed to find any concert festival collection or anthology as versitle and delightful as this. Hats off to Warner Brothers for culling together fourty years of great jazz in one beautiful collection."
