              Thank you. Really awesome and made in occasion of the recording of "Change Of Season". Very bad VHS quality for a precious footage of Masters at work. I have it too

                A superb video which reminds me a gig in Paris I went to at the Riverbop, which must have been one of the worlds' smallest Jazz clubs.Steve had his regular quintet with Bobby Few. Oliver Johnson, and Steve Potts who had to stand at the bottom of the stairs due to lack of space. Potts and Lacy got into some amazing stuff that night,lots of empaphy.

                    maybe someone posted this already, but the musicians are : steve - soprano, george lewis - tmbn, han bennink - drms, micha mengleberg - pno. Ihope that's a good guess!
