This was broadcast on radio WKCR concurrently with the live performance as part of the NYC jazz festival, so it's totally unedited. The first track consists of a lot of shuffling about and warming up before the band get to work on track 2.
The above photo is from a more recent version of the Note Factory, but should give some idea of what the band looked like.
After the end of the concert, the announcer mentions that the following concert is Noah Howard. That would be great to listen to if anyone has it.
The files I downloaded from dime are of SHN file extension, which I think is a lossless format used on MAC. I found some freeware to convert to mp3, but if anyone can tell me how to convert to flac, I could post them later.
Thanks to "abbcccus" for seeding.
