A slightly less than perfect recording off the radio - I just found this cassette which used to get a lot of play in my Walkman at work. With no info on the cassette, I had to google to try and find some details. I found a review of the concert which said the music didn't hang together, was under rehearsed and too long. Well you could have fooled me! Bobby Watson composes some of the most attractive music in jazz and this concert was really fantastic (in my opinion). Enjoy.
