Just discovered this via YouTube in the last 48 hours. What a date! Not really what I was expecting. Love the wordless female vocals -- well "love" is a little strong -- but I like where their inclusion takes the date to a whole 'nother sort of place (at times). Wish this was on CD (discogs doesn't seem to think it's ever been reissued). And Carter Jefferson really goes for broke. I mean, I knew he could play (from all those dates I have him on with Woody Shaw, primarily, and on a few other things). I think(?) the whole thing is up on YouTube, but not in a playlist (nor from the same user/uploader either). I'll try and post the whole thing here in this thread. Meanwhile, a couple discographical sources...
