Allmusic:
The second of two CDs that document a Paris concert by trumpeter Donald Byrd also features Bobby Jaspar on tenor and flute, pianist Walter Davis, Jr., bassist Doug Watkins and drummer Art Taylor. Other than Byrd's "At This Time" and Davis' "Formidable," the quintet sticks to bop standards, many of which are quite concise and clock in around three minutes. Longer versions of "Parisian Thoroughfare" (a highpoint) and "52nd Street Theme" are exceptions. This spirited bop-oriented music is the equal of the first volume.

Tracks:
-1 "Salt Peanuts" 2:13
-2 "Parisian Thoroughfare" 9:05
-3 "Stardust" 3:19
-4 "52nd Street Theme" 6:42
-5 "At This Time" 10:03
-6 "Formidable" 9:28
-7 "Two-Bass Hit" 2:56
-8 "Salt Peanuts" 2:15

*Double Bass - Doug Watkins
