On a rainy night in Oakland in April of 1965, Jack Sheldon and his regularband put on a program featuring straight ahead-jazz, vocals and comedy. Themusic is pure Sheldon with a heavy assist from Howard Roberts. On the comedyside, arranger/guitarist Jack Marshall helps co-author most of the skits. Heis even included in the program. It is a wild and crazy night at Don Mupo's,one of many. The comedy is irreverent. The music, great solos on wellcrafted melodies. Jack's humor is at it's peak hear, as are his vocals. Themusic is excellent. Highly recommended, especially to all fans of Jack Sheldon and Howard Roberts.
