This live set (recorded at Hamburg, Germany) matches together pianist Mark Shane and vocalist Terry Blaine (who are the co-leaders) with the hot cornetist Ed Polcer, trombonist Tom Artin, clarinetist Allan Vache (who doubles a little on tenor), bassist Phil Flanigan and drummer Ed Metz, Jr. Although Blaine's husky vocals are musical and swinging (best are "What a Little Moonlight Can Do," "St. Louis Blues" and "Mama Don't Allow"), the instrumentals are most memorable. The renditions of "I Never Knew" (which is nearly nine minutes long), the ten-minute version of "I Would Do Most Anything for You," and a speedy "What Is This Thing Called Love" are among the highlights. Polcer in particular is heard throughout in top form, making this a worthwhile acquisition for trad collectors.
