Anyone who owns Jazz At The Pawnshop will not be able to resist this album and experiencing the enduring spirit of an incredible musical evening. It’s called Late Night because these tapes come from previously unreleased recording of the last two sets played late-hours at the closing of the famous Jazz At The Pawnshop recording.
The record company accidentally fell upon this treasure while looking for the masters of Volume II of the original album. The 40 year-old tapes were in excellent condition, and over a week was spent editing and mastering them in high resolution.
The album keeps the musical tag which bands played to indicate the end of a set. A slow fade-out and fade-in was made to identify the break before the last one. You can hear the musicians walking back on stage, picking up their instruments, and getting into the final set of an electrifying evening.
