Horace Silver Quartet feat. Lou Donaldson - Live in NYC, 1953

Pardon the long gaps between posts - I'm just too busy in real life, and that will not change all that soon, so I can't promise that posts will appear faster in the weeks to come, sorry!
For now though, one more thing is ready and uploaded, so come back in a couple of days for a second new post!

This here is rather exciting - boots from those days are very rare, and all the more I'm glad the seeder who put up this show on dime allowed me to post it here. He recommended using the Ogg-format, which allows for less compression/loss of quality than MP3, and I followed his wish, so this comes in three files.

A magnificent set, both for the playing and its (former) rarity. Highly recommended.
