This is from a Jazz Caravan broadcast. Buckner and Parker play well together; Thomas is very heavy-handed, especially in the exchanges with Parker before the closing theme.

Thanks to Wasaburo Miura for supplying me with the interview, which is sometimes combined with another interview from February 16. But it belongs here. Thanks to Dean Chambers and James Accardi for help with this session.
