I heard the original RTF's (with Joe Farrell, Stanley Clarke, Airto & Flora) first gig at the Village Vanguard; the night was the Friday before Thanksgiving, 1971. I sat next to the stage until 2:45 a.m. enthralled.

Some of the pieces that later became standards ("Spain," "La Fiesta") just had titles like "Suite No. 1". They also did a wonderful 3/4 version of Harry Warren's "Summer Night" that was never recorded.

As good as this band's recordings were, its live impact was far greater. To this day, that night remains one of the most stunning live performances I've ever heard.

'...Pharoah Kings' was something I played over and over on my cassette deck during college in the early 70s. There was something about the interlocking themes and Chicks virtuosity while using several keyboards that never got old for me. It still moves me.

Further to Chick's comments about Keystone Korner in San Francisco, he might want to check out "Keystone Korner: Portrait of a Jazz Club," a recently published book of photographs by Kathy Sloane. The book can be easily found on Amazon.
