Woody Herman was no purist. During his career, he teamed up with a wide variety of musicians, including Dixieland and country performers. Still, a few eyebrows may have elevated when word got around that he was going to make an album with a rock 'n' roll guitarist. Michael Bloomfield, however, was not just any rock guitar player. He was a thoroughly seasoned bluesman from Chicago and, as it turned out, perfectly capable of standing in front of one of the great jazz bands and wailing the blues as if he'd been working with Herman for years. Woody and the blues, of course, went back a long way together, so it was a good fit all 'round. Herman played and sang with his usual authority, and his young band extended themselves for the boss and his guest. One of the highlights of this bluesfest is Alan Broadbent's not inconsiderable feat of melding the electric piano and the classic "After Hours" and making it a believable marriage.

with Woody Herman, Alan Broadbent, Michael Bloomfield, Alan Read, Ed Soph, Bobby Burgess, Ira Nepus, Don Switzer, Tony Klatka, Tom Harrell, Buddy Powers, Forrest Buchtel, Bill Byrne, Gene Smookler, Sal Nistico, Frank Tiberi, Steve Lederer
