NDR Jazz Workshop No. 16; produced by Hans Gertberg. Two other titles were performed, both versions of Jimmy Giuffre and Jon Hendricks' "Four Brothers," one as the opener (1:50) and another as the closer (3:00). Thanks to Noal Cohen for bringing these extra tunes to my attention. See his excellent Lucky Thompson discography for details.
