5.0 out of 5 stars Not just handy - essential!, 14 Dec. 2007
This review is from: Live at the Monterey Jazz Festival 1965 (Audio CD)
So many great jazz recordings are live renditions of tunes, because it is a characteristic of jazz as opposed to classical music that it will respond to the vibe at the time of playing, spontaneously develop the prepared musical arrangement with feelings of that moment, often determined by the audience.

There must surely have been the most wonderful vibe in Monterey when this set, long overdue in CD version, was performed. If ever there was a piece of music to chill out to in reverential silence and total concentration it is this. Apart from Handy's lovely sax Michael White's violin work is spine-chillingly tender. But so is the bass and guitar work.

If you were gonna give a loved one a present of just one set of music try this. You will be overawed.
