AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

This live set is notable for teaming guitarist Wes Montgomery and the Wynton Kelly Trio (comprised of pianist Kelly, bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer Jimmy Cobb) with the fiery tenor of Johnny Griffin. As with the OJC release, six selections (highlighted by “Blue ‘n’ Boogie” and Montgomery’s “S.O.S.”) are augmented by “Born to Be Blue” and a pair of alternate takes.

Tracklist:
01. Full House (9:15)
02. I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face (3:30)
03. Blue ‘n’ Boogie (9:40)
04. Cariba (9:42)
05. Come Rain or Come Shine (take 2) (7:00)
06. S.O.S. (take 3) (5:06)
07. Come Rain or Come Shine (take 1) (7:19)
