What? The album was recorded for and released on Mingus' private label back in the 1960s. For many years, this was probably the most obscure Mingus recording. Much later, Sue Mingus reissued it on LP (I believe with the Jazz Record Center), dubbed from a clean original LP, as the concert tape could not be found. The Sunnyside release is the CD version of that reissue.

You're confirming what I said - the master tape is clearly lost.

My point is that the CD cover clearly states "direct from the original master tapes" when it is obviously not. The master tape is lost. A needle drop recording of an old LP is not a master tape.

Ahh - I saw the CD cover and missed the little question at the end. That's what happens when you can only quote a post that is quoting another post and not include both of them. :)

Didn’t the master tapes for that one go missing back in the early 1970s due to negligence? - or maybe it was even earlier around the time of Mingus’ eviction. There’s a thread somewhere on this site telling the full story and I recall board member Brownie mentioning that he got a copy of the original LPs by mail from Mingus himself, complete with letter !

Re letters, a friend in the early 60s who was buying the Atlantic Ornettes as they came out wrote requesting a catalog which he duly received accompanied by a letter from Nesuhi Ertegun!

Yes, I believe the story was the tapes (and other unrelated tapes) were stored with Capitol records and someone there ordered their destruction without contacting the owners, including Mr. Mingus.

James Moody, Lewis Nash, Todd Coolman, Kenny Barron - Moody 4a - Amazon.com  Music

I love James Moody and must admit, that my first hearing experience was from the legendary "Miles Davis-Tadd Dameron" in Paris 1949, which came out in 1977. 

I had not heard about Moody before and was astonished how modern he sounds, and I had heard Dave Liebman live on several occasions before and he was then my favourite Saxophonist, and I was astonished that some "scream" in Moody´s solos almost reminded me of Liebman and other post Coltrane saxophonists.....

Later I saw Moody on several occasions, very often with Dizzy. 

One fantastic live concert was 1999 at the Viennese Jazzland, my wife and me were in the first row. 

During that time, it was the most normal thing that you smoke in a jazz club. And when Moody was scheduled, we were told NOT to smoke. 

Art Farmer was there and had a long talk with Moody during intermission. It was the last time I saw him, he died shortly after that. 

After the concert, Moody shook my wife´s and my hands and said "Thank you for not smoking" and we said "WE MUST THANK YOU, it was WONDERFUL".

One year later, my wife and me were in Miami and Moody was in town. I think it was "Van Dyke´s" on Lincoln Road. Before the concert startet, we were allready there and here comes James Moody with his bags and spotted us, came to our table, shook our hands and said "You were in Vienna last year. Art Farmer was there" Yes, we said, it´s so sad he died. 

But isn´t that incredible ? Mr Moody, who played hunderts of gigs for millions of people, recongnized us two a year later on an other continent.......
