Lionel Hampton began his career playing drums for the Chicago Defender Newsboys' Band (led by Major N. Clark Smith) while still a teenager in Chicago. He moved to California in 1927 or 1928, playing drums for the Dixieland Blues-Blowers. Beginning in February 1984, Hampton and his band played at the University of Idaho's annual jazz festival, which was renamed the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival the following year. In 1987 the UI's school of music was renamed for Hampton, the first university music school named for a jazz musician. Hampton remained active until a stroke in Paris in 1991 led to a collapse on stage. Live at the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre. with Ernie Andrews, Gerald Wiggins Trio, Harry "Sweets" Edison, Teddy Edwards. Compilations of note.

Ernie Andrews has managed to be both popular and underrated throughout his lengthy career. After his family moved to Los Angeles, he sang in a church choir, and while still attending high school had a few hits for the G&G label. Billy Eckstine and Al Hibbler were early influences and, after reaching maturity, Andrews was somewhat in the shadow of Joe Williams (who has a similar style). Andrews recorded for Aladdin, Columbia, and London in the late '40s, spent six years singing with the Harry James Orchestra, and cut a couple of big band dates for GNP/Crescendo during 1958-1959.

Lionel Hampton began his career playing drums for the Chicago Defender Newsboys' Band (led by Major N. Lionel Hampton at the Aquarium, New York, c. June 1946 (photograph: William Gottlieb). While Hampton worked for Goodman in New York, he recorded with several different small groups known as the Lionel Hampton Orchestra, as well as assorted small groups within the Goodman band  . jamming with old friends including trumpeters Clark Terry and Harry "Sweets" Edison, tenors James Moody and Buddy Tate, trombonist Al Grey, pianist Hank Jones, bassist Milt Hinton, and drummer Grady Tate.

Trumpeter Harry Edison (1915-1999) was given the nickname Sweets by tenor saxophonist Lester Young when both were in the Basie band. The name perfectly fit the way that Edison bent notes and the feeling that he put into each solo. He became renowned for his ability to say the most by playing the least, often repeating the same note for dramatic effect. Sweets was very busy in the 1950s, working in the studios, touring with Jazz At The Philharmonic, having reunions with Basie sidemen, and recording both jazz dates and commercial sessions including appearing on a few of Frank Sinatra’s records. One of Edison’s recordings, Jawbreakers, was made for Riverside and for the first time teamed him with tenor saxophonist Eddie Lockjaw Davis. Edison rejoined Basie’s orchestra for a few special occasions in the 1960s and in the mid-1970s recorded regularly for Norman Granz’s Pablo label.

Probably the last recording by vibraphonist, who was in his nineties and in ill health, so he is a shadow of his former self on stage, though he gamely tries to execute the performances he became known for well into his eighties. His big band shines, as do the Gerald Wiggins Trio, Sweets Edison and Ernie Andrews (with an assist from Teddy Edwards). One other gripe is the lack of proofreading in the booklet. A number of names are misspelled, one is incomplete and the credits for one brass instrument list "trumbone." Comedian Steve Allen's introduction of Lionel Hampton makes fun of his slow entrance to the stage (likely following a stroke), one of the rare times where Allen wasn't funny.
