Berkshire Music Barn, Lenox School Of Jazz, Lenox, Mass., August 29, 1959

probably also with: Jimmy Giuffre, Gary McFarland, Al Kiger, Attila Zoller & Ran Blake

For those who are unfamiliar with this extraordinary recording, some history is warranted: the Lenox School of Jazz was started in l957 as somewhat of a summer camp for jazz students from around the world and was presided over by some of the cream of professional musicians, e.g. Bill Evans, John Lewis, Jimmy Giuffre, Dizzy Gillespie, Gunther Schuller, George Russell, Kenny Dorham, Max Roach, and many, many more. Each season would conclude with a benefit concert by the students and faculty. On August 29, 1959, the concert was recorded by an Atlantic Records engineer and privately issued on one LP – SOJ (School of Jazz) - that was later sold on a very limited basis as a fund-raiser. No art cover was produced. The records were issued is a plain paper sleeve. The student and faculty participants on the 11 tracks consist, in part, of Perry Robinson, Attila Zoller, Gary McFarland, Kenny Dorham, Steve Kuhn, Don Cherry, Ornette Coleman, Jimmy Giuffre, and others. These are deep-groove engineer’s test pressings, which differ from standard test pressings in that they were circulated in-house only between the engineer, the producer, and company executives. The original plain sleeve is included, with “Nesuhi” written in the upper left corner (for Nesuhi Ertegun – producer and co-owner of Atlantic Records). The pressings are dated on the labels “11/11/59”, are in the typical Atlantic format, i.e. one side contains music from the concert and the other side contains unrelated music (for instance, Bobby Darin).
