An adventurous set.

In thanks to their (and others') efforts here's a repost of Ilario's gift by way of Riccardo (still missed). These are the original split flac archive (now bundled into two zips to reduce the number of links to click).

Very nice stuff. Any more obscure Waldron live? I had a nice audience mics recording from a Mal live show about 15 years ago that was sent to me on CD by a Swiss doctor but I lost CD in transition unfortunately. Anyway much obliged.

One of the best recordings in my entire collection. This is as good if not better than any official Waldron / Lacy release in my opinion.
