Format: Audio CD
This is probably Maynard's most enjoyable album ever. Different versions of ome of the tunes were released on other albums, but this recording is special. I've heard virtually all of Maynard's recordings, and this one is the only one that uses more natural acoustics so you get to hear Maynard's sound without a lot of amplification, as it would be heard in a good concert hall. The effect is a natural, reverberant sound completely unlike super-dry jazz studio recordings or overload-the-mic "live" recordings. This is Maynard at the height of his powers, with a fantastic band, playing the big band jazz he did so well before his more commercial endeavors. Most notably, this album features Maynard's most dramatic reading of "Ole," with mind-blowing trips into the stratosphere, and a version of "Got the Spirit" that features Maynard far more than the "Live at Jimmy's" recording. Highly recommended.

GREAT! The original vinyl pressing release had a pre-echo where you could hear passages of pieces prior to the actual recording. It was very distracting and disturbing , most notably on the quiet sections where Maynard was getting ready to blow the roof of the house. (Most notably in "Ole" and "Got The Spirit"). Well , this release rectified all those problems , and the sound is STUNNING !Buy it now from Amazon....you will not regret
