Pardon my ignorance, but what specifically is a "mics recording"?
Is this recorded off the microphones? Is this "soundboard"? Sorry for sounding so uninformed, but could you please explain in more detail? Many thanks.

Hey Anon,
what you asked here is very deep question, but I can't figure out what did you expect to be used for live recording? Dildo?

I look forward to hear this intriguing combination. Many thanks, riccardo.

I had never heard of this "Homage To Charles Parker", excerpt very intriguing, and two musicians that I like, more on Douglas Ewart side maybe.
many thanks Riccardo

corvimax -- the studio "Homage to Charles Parker" is one of the very greatest jazz albums and is available as an MP3 download on amazon.com for an insanely cheap price. (For some reason it's four times more expensive on iTunes.)
