Charles Tolliver & NDR Big Band - Hamburg 1979
Here's a nice little show featuring Charles Tolliver with the NDR Big Band.
The NDR Big Band's full line-up for this show hasn't been determined, it seems (if you know more, please post a comment!), but it includes several late greats, including Herb Geller and Benny Bailey, whom I was lucky enough to catch live just in time. Wolfgang Dauner is on piano (check out the series of Radio Jazz Group Stuttgart shows posted here for some quite different Dauner).
The great Tolliver photos were shot by Karlheinz Klüter, the year is unknown.

All applause was cut out and there were almost no gaps between titles.
I added bits of silence at the end of #1 and #2 and were necessary smoothed out the marks a bit.
Mark 5/6 was set too late - fixed
