Is this the Xanadu album from Paris ? I have it LP with the same photo, but a golden cover and it´s titled "Bud in Paris".
Bud plays really great on this, fast like in his early days, (Shaw Nuff, Get Happy, John´s Abbey). And great the two tunes with Barney Wilen (Oleo, Autumn in New York).
I like very much the 4 sections from the Oscar Pettiford Memorial Concert.
There is only a wrong date on the two duos with Johnny Griffin. They are not from February 1960 (when Griffin was not in Paris), they are from February 1964 recorded at Francis Paudras´ home.
Yeah, Lennie and Chet were very close friends. When Lennie died ( police think that he was strangled and dumped in a pool) Chet couldn't even talk about it without breaking down and crying, as he did during the documentary on Lennie made by his daughter.
