In November 1967, Grey received an invitation to play at the II Festival Internacional de Jazz de Barcelona, where his full-strength band delivered a fervent performance —before an enthusiastic audience—in the only album they ever recorded. In addition, this CD includes some previously unreleased recordings from a concert a year later in Aix en Provence.

In these recordings Sonny Grey’s big band shows the vitality and wild, joyous abandon of all the best American orchestras, with its leader conducting and soloing with effervescent intensity throughout.
