Format: Audio CD
Since they don't list the tracks on the edition I'm writing this (I have no doubt my comments will appear under other issues of the same album as well),
I'll write about my CD - 12 tracks; 11 of which were published by Audio Fidelity,
plus "Blue Lou" published under the Playboy label.
Basically, this is an excellent example of mature swing SLIGHTLY influenced by later developments in music, true its swinging nature, beautifully recorded, performed with gusto.
Cat Anderson's trumpet is the main side attraction as far as solos go - it's HAMP all over the place. The band is swinging and powerful, with some of the names jazz fans will recognize in various contexts - not necessarily related to Hamp or to swing for that matter:
Ed Williams, Ed Mullens, Arthur Hayle, Dave Gonzalez, Donald Byrd, C. Anderson- tp, Clarence Watson, Lou Blackburn, Wade Marcus -tb, Bobby Plater (as, fl), Ed Pazant (as), Herman Green, Andrew McGhee -ts, Lonnie Shaw - bs, Hampton - vb, p, d, vo; Wade Legge-p, Billy Mackel -g....

I just wander did Hamp really write "Kidney Stew", sung, probably by a Cornelius "Pinochio" James here
- a nice blue break from predominantly swing oriented album.
Among other attractions are "Flying Home" (surprisingly elegant rendition), "Red Top", "Elaine and Duffy" (with a nice stint for Plater's flute and Mackel's electric guitar)...

I'd warmly recommend this to all the swing and mainstream jazz fans.
Hamp sings "Hey-ba-ba-re-bop" with the band and adds an extatic "e-e-e-e" or pensive "hm" now and then.

Recorded 1959 and one of Hamp's more disciplined big bands. Some great arrangements coupled with strong solo work. If you enjoy powerful big bands this is a must.

Great Album, Audio-Fidelity Studio Quality!!! 25 Oct 2005
By Dr. Walter Oberlnder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is not an album of the LIVING STEREO series of RCA, it was recorded April 1959 by Audio Fidelity and later purchased by RCA.It contains studio-re- recordings of all his hits by a great Bigband of Stars like Cat Anderson, Donald Byrd, Bobby Plater, Billy Mackel or Charlie Persip. Buy this CD when you can get it! There is another RCA- Album in real stereo from 1955 titled "Flying Home with Lionel Hampton", this must be the mentioned real Living Stereo- recording. I have only a RCA- Camden LP of it, but the sound is great. It is still missing on CD. Lionel Hampton recorded another album with small groups for Audio- Fidelety which is not really rereleased, only something that has the sound of the private rerecording from a worn LP on the Fuel- Label.

Great big band jazz 13 May 2009
By R. Harnett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is an outstanding Audio Fidelity studio recording of a great big band playing classic jazz/blues tunes. Unusual combination of a big band fronted by a vibes player (except for when Hampton plays drums or piano). The five bonus tracks (from Silver Vibes) features Lionel with a trombone section -- also quite unique. I bought the LP in high school and still have it; but I enjoy hearing the music w/o the scratches.
HAMP'S BIG BAND 19 Sep 2010
By Skill Typer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
It's Lionel Hampton - what else NEEDS to be said? I bought this CD for its particular version of the tune titled "HEY BA BA RE BOB", and I was NOT disappointed. GREAT CD!
