The main thing about the "This Is Pat Moran" album is that LaFaro stated in an interview in The Jazz Review: "I don't even like any of my recordings except maybe the first one I did with Pat Moran on Audio Fidelity." Indeed, his playing on the album is astonishing, and he's vividly recorded, too.

About Moran's own playing -- she does have vim and vigor, but I find her cocktail-lounge bluesiness hard to take. There was a lot of that going around at the time.
