CTI All Stars - Munich 1972

Here's a massive slice of CTI all stars, recorded in Munich 1972, during the Olympic Games, it seems. Other artists that performed during the Olympic Games were John McLaughlin, both solo and with the Mahavishnu Orchestra, as well as a concert shared here before, by Art Blakey and Tony Williams (links are still good).

This CTI show features the late Freddie Hubbard, Stanley Turrentine, as well as Hubert Laws, Ron Carter, Jack DeJohnette, Joe Farrell and other mainstays of the legendary Creed Taylor founded label.

Doug Payne has a great label discography up on his page, and there's a huge blog over here, hosting rips of many albums. Much of it is OOP or hard to find, I think... I didn't get much there as I'm not a big fan of CTI productions and the way they sound, usually... of course everyone ought to own "Red Clay" and "Straight Life" by Freddie Hubbard, though!
