This live set with organist Milt Buckner and drummer Tony Crombie is quite fun. Tenor great Illinois Jacquet roars throughout "The King," "C Jam Blues" and "Take The 'A' Train," makes a warm ballad statement on "Easy Living" and on "I Wanna Blow Now" he takes an enthusiastic vocal that is highlighted by a surprisingly effective imitation of Ella Fitzgerald. The LP has been long out-of-print but it is worth picking up even if Buckner's organ playing lacks much subtlety.
