 A great memory rekindled July 16, 2016 By Robert C. (Ashfield, MA) See All My Reviews "I first heard these recordings in the 60's and jumped at the chance to get this set. The warmth, balance, the capture of the spirit and melodic beauty, and the quality of the playing (especially considering it was a "pickup ensemble) are all even better than I remembered."
