Clark Terry led a short-lived big band in the mid-'70s, and the 18-piece orchestra is showcased on this set from the 1974 Wichita Jazz Festival. With arrangements by Ernie Wilkins, Phil Woods, Jimmy Heath, and Allan Foust, the emphasis during this CD reissue is on swinging in a beboppish fashion. However, C.T. kept an open mind and his performance also has versions of Kenny Dorham's "Una Mas" and Wayne Shorter's "Nefertiti" along with some more basic material. In addition to the fl?gelhornist/leader (who takes a trademark vocal on "Mumbles" and good-humoredly announces the songs), such soloists as altoist Phil Woods, tenor man Jimmy Heath, and pianist Duke Jordan are among the more important voices. This is an easily recommended CD for straight-ahead jazz fans. ~ Scott Yanow
