The 1967 edition of Woody Herman's Orchestra is captured live in concert on this well-recorded European import. With fine playing from tenor saxophonist Sal Nistico, baritonist Ronnie Cuber, pianist John Hicks and high-note trumpeter Bill Chase, this is an excellent all-around showcase for the band. Some tunes are stronger than others, with "Greasy Sack Blues" and "Jumpin' Blue" being high points, although "Make Someone Happy" and the funky "Hush" are more routine. To Herman's credit, "Four Brothers" is the only one of his older songs to be reprised on this interesting set; the leader sounds good on clarinet, alto and soprano.
