Completely agree with you, Marc. Gerry is one of the greatest all-time improvisers. He loved to play and had an unlimited supply of melodic ideas. He's one of a select few musicians that I could listen to all day!

The sound of these SWR "Live Legends" releases are, indeed, superior to most of the live recordings from this time period. Another great one from the same series is: Cannonball Adderley Quintet-March 20, 1969. Same venue;wonderful sound and music.

I tried to buy it from Amazon as an mp3 download but as I am in Australia I was told....

Jeru-less and sad.
