This is an extremely sloppy edition with many errors in the track list. Better are the two disc versions (CD & DVD) issued by TV Matters.

Due to the distant sound and audience noise close to the microphone, this is apparently an audience recording. That said, the performances are great.

Vocalist Lorraine Feather is the high point of this release, though some of the vintage material is watered down with unnecessary keyboard and drum programming, which doesn't fit the music.

A complete moron did the production work on this bootleg. Not only are there gaps between tracks but the end of each one is rapidly faded out, so one is challenged to download and restore the concert to the way it sounded as performed. Unacceptable ,... See full review

posted a review of Stan Getz Featuring Kenny Barron - The Final Concert Recording. 4 months ago
The title of this set is misleading as Stan Getz & Kenny Barron: People Time was recorded over four days in March 1991 and was issued well before this set.

The acoustic tracks are far better than those with electric keyboards, though Getz sounds true... See full review
