Really looking forward to this. Hemphill's solo work is a favorite, and it'll be good to hear them stretch out on the Jump Suite.

cheers for this posting, looks very interesting, given the relative paucity of Hemphill's recorded output any additional offering are always welcome.

What a Fucking Band!!!!! A little bit of hiss but what a BEAUTIFUL recording!!!
Very thankful to hear this performance!
Everyone is on point... and Wadud, to me, had to be one of Hemphill's best foils.... As well as one of my favorite cellists.
Thank you for the re-posting this and the other Hemphill's, mew23.
Riccardo, wish I'd had the chance to discuss some of these shows with you. Grazie.
Man, on Body (track 2), when Hemphill busts into that hard blues (no pun intended) at about 6:45.mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm! Then beauty ensues...........
