A rare opportunity to experience a live performance by a classic version of the WGJB, comprising some of the best improvising musicians on the jazz scene, several of whom had been ground breakers from the Thirties. They were all mature and at the top of their game at the time the music on this concert was recorded. As Yank states at the conclusion, "It was a ball!"
