THE TIME AND THE PLACE - THE LOST CONCERT
In 1967, Columbia issued The Time And The Place by the Art Farmer quintet, billing it as a concert from the Museum Of Modern Art. In fact, it was a studio recording with fake applause dubbed in. The real concert sat in the vaults until three tunes came out on a 1982 double LP reissue. Even then, no one seemed to discover the ruse. When Mosaic began researching Farmer's Columbia tapes, it became obvious that those three tracks were live and the original album was manipulated.
The actual concert took place on August 18, 1966 was recorded and, except for three tunes, has sat in the vaults ever since. We have uncovered the original three-track masters of the unedited performance, which contains seven superb extended performances and remixed them in 24-bit. This 72-minute CD contains the real concert as it happened by one of the finest, if unhearalded, hard bop bands of the '60s.
The quintet with Jimmy Heath, Albert Dailey, Walter Booker and Mickey Roker was seven months old and had developed into a first-rate hard bop ensemble. Where tunes like On The Trail and The Time And The Place were under three and five minutes respectively on the released album, each is a ten-minute tour-de-force in concert.
