Robert Parker - Regional Rare
Here's another of the Robert Parker shows. More great stuff here. I know it's not really cool to dig this early stuff but it really work checking out. And these sessions are as clean as they are rare.
I have really fond memories of hearing these shows. They would run on the nearby college/NPR station on Sunday evenings. I was living in a basement apartment outside Chicago, mostly friendless and broke. I was learning more and more about jazz from this radio station. I recorded a handful of these on cassettes at the time because I suspected it was something that probably needed time to sink in.
It's always a treat to post one of these shows because it's gonna be playing in the background.
As usual, dig it, cats!!
