I believe I was at that gig. August 10, 1981?

That was the first night. The album has tracks chosen from the 10th through the 15th.

I was about to say that I was jealous, but I saw/heard this duo a few years later in Atlanta - and with a better piano. "Hooray for Herbie" fell apart going back into the head after the solos. Lacy and Waldron stopped in confusion, looked at each other for a few moments, and just started up again where they left off.

Jazz West Coast Volume 5 from this box.

Nice to listen to this set during the last few days.. Now on the first disc, one I have special affection for as it was my introduction to west coast jazz not far off 60 years ago.

I just recently bought this for a decent price from a dealer on Amazon.  Listening to Disc 2 right now.  I gotta say, after acquiring a few of the Motown Complete Singles  collections, this Verve set is a bit disappointing.  Singles have two sides, so in my view, both sides of a disc should be included in a collection such as this even if the B-side is less than stellar.  The liner notes seem rather perfunctory; I guess they spent more time & effort on the book that was issued concurrently with this set.  Each disc is housed in a cardboard gatefold sleeve, but the inside of each is merely blank -- they could have at least added a few photos of various musicians there.  Still, there are many enjoyable tracks to be found here.  This set is worth getting at the right price.
