1 Eye of the Hurricane (H. Hancock) 9:29

4 Virgo (W. Shorter) 6:35

Execrable quality, but this is the Miles Davis Quintet minus its leader, with Gary Peacock sitting in for Ron Carter. It's possible that venue is Slug's Saloon; apparently that's what Wayne Shorter remembers. The date may be later in the summer. The recording was broadcast on WBAI-FM. I'm grateful to Bob Belden and Lewis Porter for help with this session.
