One of the greatest concerts of the
CTI records had their strengths and weaknesses, but this album is nothing but strengths. It was long unavailable on CD --you could pay 100 dollars for an incomplete version, lacking an entire album side for the past decade!-- it's now twice as big as before. Any jazz fan will love this recording. Grab it while you can.
I actually got a opportunity to see this show in Seattle back in '73. Man they rocked the house. Been waiting on this to be released. My favorite cut, Red Clay. It seemed that whenever and wherever Freddie would play he cooked. And that being one of his signature songs, I can still see him on stage at the Paramont.. Can I give this anymore stars?
And thank you for the extended version. Back then,I didn't know I was missing anything on the ole 8 track.
I was there
I was there, and it was the greatest experience in jazz history. I've been to many many jazz concerts in my lifetime and they were all something very special, but to have all those jazz giants on the same stage in their prime was the concert of all concerts. masters each and every one of them. something I'll never forget and always cherish.
