    The second of two volumes by "the Golden Men of Jazz" at the Blue Note in New York, this CD is not at the same level as the first with several almost chaotic spots; listen to how Lionel Hampton tries to hog the spotlight on "Ring Dem Bells." There are some good moments from Clark Terry, James Moody and Al Grey (although Harry Edison and Buddy Tate show their age a bit) but the earlier release, Live at the Blue Note, is a much better buy. ~ Scott Yanow

    Q (6/93, p.97) - 3 Stars - Good - "...Lionel Hampton imparts the same slamming exuberance to everything he does, and embodies the spirit of swing as it was originally conceived when they queued to get into the Roseland or Savoy. This is a session of freewheeling mainstream music..."
