  2. It is nice that track 9 O Holy Night/Joy To The World is included here, as it is omitted on her 2008 concert due to it being released.

  3. hey bigo, yusef lateef died yesterday. he was 93 years old. maybe you could offer a show by him preferably an older show.

    people really should check out eastern sounds on ojc, jazz ’round the world and psychicemotus on impulse. he was a great multi instrumentalist.
