This is a great historical document of a genius at work live with a great combo, but the sound quality on this CD is disappointing. The liner notes cite the use of "no-noise" processing which can level out a lot of the dynamics in a recording. To add insult to injury there's still an awful lot of tape hiss. I'd like to get my hands on an original LP to compare.
