The recording came out pretty well after an initial technical difficulty resulting in the first tune of the night being missed. Also, Mr Grimes was very under-amplified

The performances were fantastic....Douglas' quartet opened with excepts from "Complete Communion" followed by Campbell's Quartet, doing Charlie Haden's "Song For Che" and a Campbell-penned Cherry tribute.

After an intermission, All 8 players performed the complete "Symphony For Improvisors" LP

Many thanks for posting this! I was very fortunate to have attended this show while visiting NYC via Seattle that week. Even better was to sit and chat with Joe McPhee during/after. It's quite special to be able to relive this performance and share with friends for whom words failed to convey the magic. Any chance of posting a lossless version in the future?

Regards,

Thanx for your comment.
The audio source is MPEG-2 which is lossless. I just converted it to MP3.

Fairly new visitor here and thought this looked promising. Alas it is removed from Mediafire. Any chance of a reup somewhere else? Even RS bastards? I know what a pain that can be so thanks no matter what.

Re-uploaded. Have fun!
