Reggie Workman Solo - Zurich 2007 (Unerhoert 2/4)

Post 1/4: Irene Schweizer + Trio 3

Reggie Workman (born 1937) is one of the diminishing number of jazz giants still trodding the earth. He played with so many of the greats, let me just mention John Coltrane and Art Blakey's best ever edition of the Jazz Messengers, Wayne Shorter and Archie Shepp, Mal Waldron, Andrew Cyrille and Oliver Lake.

Reggie Workman Solo
Unerhört 2007 - Zürich (Switzerland), Moods - November 25, 2007

Reggie Workman - bass

1. Sketch (30:42)

Sound: A- (mono)
Source: audience recording / left from stage (turned out more or less mono)
Lineage: crappy Sony mic > minidisc > analogue to HD > Cool Edit Pro > FLAC (8,asb,verify)
Recorded, transferred & shared by ubu

This was recorded in stereo but the left channel wasn't ok (not just low level but also distortion), so I only used the right one (double up to create "stereo" files that can be encoded to FLAC and burned to CDR)
There were quite a few dropouts that I did remove, some hiccups remain, alas.
