    jazz at the pawnshop is THE reference recording, I heard it the first time back in 1977. It is such an awesome live recording that unparalleled even by today's standard...congrats on the finding!
    I am sorry, I have no opinion on the matter. I am sure you do. So, don't mind me, I just want to talk audio and pie.
