    This double LP is a classic. For a concert held at the Hollywood Palladium in 1971, Creed Taylor gathered together most of his top stars and demonstrated why CTI was one of the most significant labels of the era. On lengthy renditions of "Fire and Rain," "Red Clay," "Sugar," "Blues West," and "Leaving West," the all-star lineup (trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, tenor saxophonist Stanley Turrentine, altoist Hank Crawford, flutist Hubert Laws, guitarist George Benson, keyboardist Johnny Hammond, bassist Ron Carter, drummer Billy Cobham, and percussionist Airto) is in inspired form, particularly Hubbard and Turrentine. This wonderful music belongs in every serious jazz collection. ~ Scott Yanow
