The power, precision and beauty of live classical music left a huge impression on me at the age of 13 (1965) at my first live concert, so much so I went on to play the double (upright) bass in our public high school band.
And noo, I never attended summer band camps, gosh dang it :slight_frown::rolling_eyes::smile: lol

This is a great set- I believe the full set was recorded over a period of three or so days. Great recordings, great musicianship. You can hear change clinking in the cash registers, people talking and laughing, you get the full club experience including the acoustics of the venue.

Waltz for Debby might have come off the same masters, also some great cuts on that album.

LaFaro was killed in a car crash at age 25 or so within a month of that performance. When you hear the way he played bass you realize what an unspeakable loss his death was for the music world.

There were two albums released from the June 25 sessions: "Waltz for Debbie" and "Sunday at the Village Vanguard." This album combines those two and was released later, in 2005. I've listened to it once before ... when the music gets in my head, I can't get it out (a good thing). Mr. Evans was such a passionate player ... just awesome.
I was all set to listen to Chick Corea's Trilogy today, which is also spectacular, but then I saw this. Tomorrow it will be Chick's trio - also great music, with Brian Blade and Christian McBride. :)
