Producer’s note:
 There are instances of distortion in all of these live recordings, most noticeably in Meditations On Integration from the Monterey concert. Every effort has been made to improve the audio on all this music to best of our ability.
 On the Town Hall recording, Johnny Coles had a bad habit of occasionally soloist off mic; nothing can be done to retrieve or enhance the sound on those occasions.
