As Dick points out, the '49 band was poorly recorded. However he is also the tenor soloist with an equally impressive band that Barnet put together for some recording sessions for Everest in 1958. The sound quality on these is superb. Considering the caliber of Hafer's playing on recordings by the various leaders mentioned, it's curious that he didn't record under his own name until the 1990s, but such is the jazz world. Kudos to Marc for tracking him down and getting an interview.
