                                 Release Notes
Another one from Joe Newman here.  He's with some old friends from Basie's 
lineup on this one.  I think Basie might have been on a break while this took 
place, which probably explains why the guys were wanting some temporary tide-
over gig income.  Swings like a mutha, financials or not. 

I see this thing referenced by several release dates online, so someone might 
dispute what I've put here.  I honestly am not sure who bases their info on 
what, but when in doubt I usually go by the LP label or the copyright date on 
the sleeve.  Concert year was 1958 but it says 1960 release date on the World-
Pacific pressing.  Metronome copyright says 1958.  Whatever, I'll go with 1958 
for now. There's always the delete key.  Enjoy it - MM

Quick FYI:  This is a live concert taping, so, on a rip like this, timings 
between tracks are kinda subjective.  If you like to burn your binaries I'd 
probably do this one without a two second gap between tracks, just to keep it 
sounding the way it was intended.

This originated from a lossless audio stream rip from a Tidal music service 
subscription of mine.  Rip was done using an Asus Xonar DG sound card.  Wave 
editor was Cool Edit Pro using 48k/floating 32 bit settings.  It was then 
converted down to 24 bit using DbPowerAmp, then converted to flac files. (For 
those of you in the .mp3 binaries, I compressed it further to 320 kb/s with 
DbPowerAmp using Lame encoder.)  Track timings will be "approximate" to that of 
the original release but are by no means exact to the second.  

Because of the lack of .log and .cue files it probably won't be something a 
hard core collector wants.  But it's plenty good enough for the average 
listener. In terms of sound quality, I see no reason why it should be 
distinguishable from your garden variety CD.  In fact, Tidal service says this 
particular feed was HDCD quality, which I shuck out a couple bucks extra for.  
Tracks are tagged and I put some info in the comments section about the source 
and .wav gathering, just to keep the digital gene pool organized.  If possible 
I'll try to find some artwork off the web to include with it.

p.s. - I am generally not very good about re:'s in the group.  But I always 
pack releases with plenty of .pars to help them survive in the wild, plus all 
the above documentation to prevent confusion as much as possible.  Just my way 
of giving back after leeching on here for longer than I can remember.
