Show Notes:
tracks 1 - 6 : With Walter Bishop (piano), Mundell Lowe (guitar), Teddy Kotick (bass) and MAx Roach (drums)
tracks 7 - 19 : Add strings to the above

source: The small band tracks burn, and the crowd is right there with it "Go! Man Go!", "Ahhh.. AHHHH HA!", etc. The string tracks are a little too stale for me some of the time.. but all in all, a very great show by the master! It recorded by Chan Parker (his wife) with a tape recorder all those many years ago and has drop outs, static, uneven levels, etc, but FORGET ABOUT IT, there is no such thing as a perfect sounding live Parker show, just get into his lighting mind!
