The New Earl Hines Trio - 'Fatha'

The first performances of the New Earl Hines Trios in March 1964 were a remarkable example of inspired, improvised teamwork. They took place in a series of three concerts at the Little Theatre on Broadway. Though he was introduced to bassist Ahmed Abdul Malik and drummer Oliver Jackson only an hour or so before the first concert, Hines sent a sophisticated New York audience into ecstasies, and drew rave reviews from the press, most notably from such experienced critics as John S. Wilson of the N. Y. "Times" and Whitney Balliett of "The New Yorker" magazine.
The album in your hands was made by the same trio when Hines returned to the city later in the year, and in it he demonstrates once more that his is one of the perennial, self-renewing talents of jazz. A highly individual style, which he created many years before, is the heart of his playing today, but much has been added, so that the Hines of the 1960's is better equipped than ever to express the teeming ideas of his fertile mind...
Stanley Dance (1964), from the original notes (booklet)

i really do not understand why the fellas that are helping Mel are using a different pw...!
if so, please tell this on the re-post itself.
does not make sense to put the pw hosted on RS, if the majority of SVNV's visitors can not access RS anymore w/o a premium account!
weird...
