here’s a pairing of two greats, from 30-odd years ago.  ubu shared this on dime and also on his now largely quiescent blog, in 2009, after some well-detailed edits (thanks, ubu).  some interesting comments there, including from preslives, who wrote “…the date with joe henderson may disappoint some familiar with their classic blue note output, as they don’t really play together in the way that they did back then. by 1988, each is in his own separate musical world. i get the feeling that andrew is just sitting in on joe’s gig. on the other hand, the way that andrew deconstructs some of these standards is astounding. what a genius he was!”  i take his point, but for me this show is all about the “on the other hand” side of the equation.

ubu’s note: the first set ends after #3, as this came (from dime), “invitation” ended disc one. if this was indeed a live broadcast, maybe “invitation” comes from the beginnig of the first set and was broadcast during the break until the second set began? the track was edited in a way that allows no clear judgement, but i have some doubts about an 18:17 minute track fitting into the break.
