                                 Release Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Another one from Budd Johnson here.  This is another old release of Budd's that 
I don't think has ever been posted on here -- at least in ten years or so.  It 
is a CD quality stream that I have dubbed off of Tidal Music Service.  If this 
stuff isn't to your liking I'd say skip this one.  Overall I think it sounds 
okay, but my ears are 60 years old.  So take that for whatever it's worth.

I totally silenced any system noise between tracks with the editor.  The track 
timings will be fairly close to match what's posted below, but they are by no 
means perfect.  Since this is a rip from an audio stream (and not a CD), no 
.cue or .log or other Exact Audio Copy files are available.  I don't know if 
people love or hate these things.  But as with most anything else in the 
binaries, the price is certainly right.  Tracks are tagged and if possible I'll 
try to include some artwork with it.

Just my little attempt to give back something to the binaries after more years 
of leeching than I care to admit to.  Some very nice performances from Budd and 
the band on this one.

Here's the Wiki on it.
Enjoy it if you grab it - mm
