This is an outstanding concert played by an exceptional band line-up featuring Freddy Hubbard, Stanley Turrentine, Ron Carter, George Benson, Hubert Laws, Hank Crawford, Johnny Hammond, Billy Cobham and Arito Moreira. This band, with a different line-up every year used to tour the USA in Summer after this successful concert.
All the tracks are both some original ones and some cover tunes such as "Fire and Rain" (James Taylor) and "Blues West" (Deodato).
Strangely the CD version omitted "Leaving West" which include an incredible Airto percussion solo.
"It's too Late" (Carole King) has been played in that concert but has never been included in the double LP. It has been released as a bonus track in a Johnny Hammond re-issue album on CD.
