SAM RIVERS TUBA TRIO/JAMES NEWTON "FLUTES" (CIRCLE RECORDS 1976/77)




I post this on behalf of inamorata.


In his own words:


Sam Rivers Tuba Trio/James Newton - Flutes!(Circle Records, 1976/1977)

This serves both as an alternative transfer of the final section of the Sam Rivers Tuba Trio at the Bimhuis in 1976 and as the first installment of The Complete James Newton on Circle Records.

A link for Sam Rivers' Essence Pt. XI (courtesy of Nick) was posted by onxidlib in the comments to http://inconstantsol.blogspot.com/2012/02/sam-rivers-tuba-trio-essence-heat-and.html. However, that transfer appears to have gone though radical noise reduction, resulting in some loss of high frequency detail. This is my own transfer, carefully de-rumbled and de-clicked but otherwise unchanged except for the manual removal of some defects (mostly in the James Newton tracks).
