One of the most remarkable aspects of Live at Carnegie Hall, which celebrates the legendary vibraphonist Lionel Hampton’s 50th anniversary in music, is that the concert was held in 1978 - more than two decades ago - and Hamp, now 91, is still going strong! Yes, he has lost a step or two, and must be helped onstage, but once he’s positioned behind the vibes the years seem to melt away, chased into some nether region by his infectious enthusiasm and love for Jazz. Together they wend their way through a dynamic program of familiar Hampton signatures - Hamp’s Boogie Woogie, Avalon, Hamp’s the Champ, Stompin’ at the Savoy and the ever–present Flyin’ Home - and other songs he’s probably played a thousand times or more including Sunny Side of the Street, Tea for Two, I’m Confessin’, More Than You Know and Runnin’ Wild.

Goodman's wistful reading of "Yesterday" is quaint enough, but being subjected to trumpeter. Intro: Lionel Hampton.
