The music circulates together with another (poorer quality) recording which is probably from another date and venue -- when Dave Liebman and Dominique Gaumont were still in the band. Thanks to Greg Chappee for pointing this out.

Davis fired Dominique Gaumont in late December, and the Septet played a couple west coast dates before embarking on a Japanese tour: Keystone Korner, San Francisco (January 14-16); Troubadour Club, Los Angeles (January 17-19, 1975).
