It was the night they buried Duke and Johnny was running late; not that the audience minded, they were too busy listening to Roy Brookes play his carpenters saw with a mallet, making it sing like a junk yard dog. It wasn't long after that Eddie Jefferson chimed in with a few, singing his legendary vocalese master piece, Moody's Mood for Love and all of this with Roy Haynes as the charming and humorous Master of Ceremonies . . .

Johnny Hartman

Live at Town Hall is the undiscovered never before released recording of this timely event; marking the night when jazz  changed forever. An intimate concert recording for the truly historic Jazz listener.
