Philadelphia 1960 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Quaker City Jazz Festival, Connie Mack Stadium, Philadelphia, PA; Recorded March 3, 1960; broadcast August 27, 1960(?). Excellent CBS radio broadcast; pitch-corrected version.

Thanks to the person who shared this on the net in 2006.

Uploader’s notes: “This was seeded on DIME and was running approximately 130 cents sharp. SoundForge pitch correction was applied to adjust the pitch and no other treatments were made.”

  5. Any chance of a tribute to the late great Richie Havens?

  6. The date of the performance is probably 8/26/60, not March. An outdoor gig in Philadelphia in March would generally be pretty chilly for the saxophones.

  7. Thank you. This is an all too rare example of Steve Lacy playing with Monk in a small group setting.

  9. Thanks for this rare gig. A plaesure to hear Steve Lacy and Roy Haynes with the usual Monk-line up of that period. I appreciate all of those jazz giants and like to have more of them.
