Kenny Werner - Monterey 1998

Pianist Kenny Werner was born in 1951 and has been on the scene for over three decades now. In the 80s, he had a longer stint with Mel Lewis' Orchestra and he has played in the groups of Joe Lovano, Tom Harrell, Eddie Gomez and others.
Werner also composed big band charts for orchestras such as the UMO Jazz Orchestra, the WDR Big Band and the Danish Radio Big Band.
He has been leading various piano trios ever since the late 70s, featuring musicians such as Tom Rainey, Johannes Weidenmüller or Ari Hoenig. On this 1998 set, he is accompanied by Dave Carpenter on bass and the great Peter Erskine on drums

This is two of Bud's shows on one disc, not sure if it's two complete sets though. Any help with the first title is appreciated.

A few bars of "Never On Sunday" find their way into the opening medley, too.
