Hamburg '72 Released

A reminder that there is no show this week. Check out the review of Hamburg '72 at All About Jazz. This summer, I played from the rare NDR Workshop LP that features some of the songs on the new CD and relevant readings from Paul's archive. As usual, Manfred Eicher has done a beautiful job editing the tapes. I'll be playing Hamburg '72 on a future show.
