Miles Davis & the Lighthouse All-Stars

This set has odds and ends recorded at the Lighthouse on a Sunday when Miles Davis was in town. He jams with the regular sextet (which included trumpeter Rolf Ericson, altoist Bud Shank, Bob Cooper on tenor and drummer Max Roach) on two numbers and has "'Round Midnight" as his feature. Max Roach takes "Drum Conversation" unaccompanied and trumpeter Chet Baker plays "At Last" with pianist Russ Freeman. The recording quality is merely okay but the viable and occasionally exciting historical music makes this a set worth picking up.

There's a problem with songs 2 & 3 (night in tunisia and round midnight). I can't read them. I don't know why as the 3 other numbers are working perfectly.
Just wanted you to know about that. Thanks again for all.

"File not found" on this one, Mel. Any chance of getting a re-up?
