Description
A group of all-stars brought together for the festival, the "Giants of Jazz" included all the players listed above, as well as Clark Terry on trumpet. Swing-infused boppers like "Perdido," "Blue 'n' Boogie," and "A Night in Tunisia" are accompanied by some truly incandescent balladry.

"Each is a masterpiece of melodic improvisation: Terry's lustrous and barely accompanied 'Stardust'; Winding's 'Lover Man' with its warm cadenza; the sudden burst of Bird-inspired alto in Stitt's 'I Can't Get Started' and Eldridge's 'The Man I Love,' all burnished brass and scorching highs. It's superb music-making, driven as much by camaraderie as competition…. Monk, who would perform little after this, is in great form, turning in a beautiful 'Round Midnight' and comping with his usual rhythmic acuity. He combines with Blakey and McKibbon to provide drive and authority. Blakey is thunderous…. It might be the 'Twilight of the Gods,' but the musicians don't seem to know it."—All About Jazz
