192KBPS mp3, but source material was Maxell tape recorded on a Panasonic 'boom' box

Clifford let us record this; I was 12. The band was awesome and the house was full. Among those in the audience: Steve Schwarz (WGBH), Alan Dawson, and John Lockwood. This was one of the first bands I saw (prior to this I'd seen George Coleman with Terri-Lynne Carrington at this venue, and Art Farmer at a local high school). Anyway, this is a nostalgic set for me, but it's great music. I sent Clifford the tapes, but he felt the sound quality was too low to be released. When I digitized it, it was in the early days of the technology and the results were somewhat sketchy. In the interim, my tape player died and I just don't care to pay to replace it, so I haven't redone these yet. Still, the music is great.

Thanks a lot to the Original Uploader!

  2. Fantastic post, thanks, I also love the idea of devoting a blog to live shows, since jazz improvisation always has some added dimensione more when performed for or at least with an audience

  3. Hello, could this one please re-uploaded? The links are dead at RS.
