Producer’s note: The unidentified Columbia remote recording engineer who tapes these performances at the It Club, then LA’s hippest jazz club, did an excellent job. Throughout these performances though, the recording quality varies as a result of the musicians’ proximity to their microphones. This is particularly true in the case of Charlie Rouse. In mixing these performances, Mark Wilder has gone to considerable lengths to compensate for those off-mic moments.
