No too shabby either :D ....

Yes, fine renditions of Vienna and In the Pines. The latter is renamed here Sandra,  I wonder if it's a dedication to Clifford's wife Sandy or to the singer on the Leadbelly album Sandra Douglass ( who only appears on this record).

I'll weigh in on this, in part because I was a good friend of Russell Thorne and heard the group many times. Daley is a kind of curate's egg, as the Brits say. When he tries to get abstract and "out," he can get a bit corny and rhythmically stiff. When he plays "hot" so to speak,  as on "Dexterity" and "One Note," his real gifts are apparent; he is basically a hot fluid player; the greater the pressure the higher the inspiration, a la Johnny Griffin perhaps. Somewhere I have some duo tracks with Joe and Rich Corpolongo that are just scaldingly intense. Thorne and Albert Stinson are to me the great post-LaFaro bassists, and while Hal Russell doesn't get the space he deserves here and is not near what he would do in later years, what he does is choice. BTW, Daley is quite effective on Thorne's striking "Knell." There when he gets spacey, it works.

That solo on "Dexterity" has been a favorite of mine forever. The whole band performance, actually.

Looks like the long-teased and now-forgotten box set of live tapes isn't gonna happen. That's really unfortunate.

The Bill Perkins Quartet - Journey to the East (Contemporary, 1985)
Bill Perkins (ts, fl) with Frank Strazzeri (p); Joel DiBartolo (b); and Peter Donald (d)

I've been enjoying Bill Perkins' music lately.  He seems to have carved out his own little niche among the many Lester-inspired tenors.

Primary

Craig Harris And Tailgaters tales - Shelter [JMT, West Germany 1987]

Not too sure how well this stands the test of time, certainly Harris's vocals

edit to add: the non-vocal tracks are pretty strong
