Chicago 1987 [no label, 2CD]

Chicago Jazz Festival, Chicago, IL; September 5, 1987. Very good FM broadcast.

Thanks to carville for sharing the show at Dime.

Now complete with the ending of Are You Real? and Night in Tunisia in full.

Recorded from a live FM broadcast by the late and much missed MM, who made a copy of his now-lost master onto two Maxell UX II 90 cassettes using Dolby C not long afterwards. That copy was digitized in 2021.
