The list author says: "Some live sets are little more than pushing the latest studio release within a nostalgic mix. (A lot of that lately.) But when folks are on fire and it gets recorded, than something that can't be unleashed in the studio moves us with a special energy."
"Coltrane assimilated and synthesized the Avant Garde explorations mainly happening around him in NYC. He was starting to apply some energy to modality with compelling results. The box set is recommended."
"After Bitches Brew, Miles took his new jazz-rock fusion for an extended tour. He started with a small group whose incendiary ensemble was well captured at the Cellar Door. The box is great, but start here with Teo's mix."
"You might say that Sun Ra's normal home studio set-up was not much more than live recording. But after reaching a creative height in the mid-60's he began touring the Arkestra with a vengeance. Too bad the visuals are not readily available."
