Simply Love It
What gems! Everyone should have Yesterday's and My Funny Valentine (Stereo Version) off of this album. Simply extroadinary recordings, in my opinon.

Sometimes so-called "all star" groups don't play as well as they might with their own regular group but this is outstanding example of all musicians concerned turning out inspired and truly exciting music. I bought the original on vinyl when it was released. I remember Billie's Bounce exploding out of the starting gate and it never let up from there. There is a burning intensity in the ballads as well as the hard swingers. A winner all the way.
A jazz lovers must!
Just take a look at the personel on the recording-you don't get better than that. These people are legends. J.J. is brilliant in his styling of "My funny valentine" and Stan really pours his heart out "Yesterdays". Of all the albums I own, this is probably my #2 or 3 favorite. The acoustics at the Chicago Lyric Opera House are tremendous and it shows on the recording despite it's age.
