Uptown is proud to issue this set featuring the great Lucky Thompson in New York City in 1964 and 1965. Presented in fully restored audio, one hears Lucky in a late night club setting at the Half Note and in a concert atmosphere from the Little Theater in downtown Manhattan. Frequently based in Europe, these rare Stateside recordings display the brilliant musician on both the tenor and the soprano sax - surrounded by friends both in the audience and on stage.
