From the Black Lion recordings. Read the blog entry to get the full rundown about this GREAT performance, and download the PDF. Two years later, emerge from the practice room...

Once again, GREAT stuff Kelly! Thanks for sharing all of these great transcriptions and most of all, for putting in the hard work getting them down on paper. Mucho appreciated!

Thanks, Gents! Dexter's Black Lion recordings have a TON of worthy transcription fodder and/or are just a great listen! I hope folks who don't know them check them out...

There's only a couple that I know of and that "Live at the Monmartre Jazzhus" is the only one I have.

A long time back I bought a little Black Lion *3-CD* box set called "Live At The Montmartre Jazzhus." I didn't know anything about the recordings, but I'd bought a previous Black Lion 3-CD Monk trio box that was glorious, so I thought I'd take a chance.

It contained 3 CDs: Both Sides of Midnight, Body & Soul, and Take The A Train. I think they might have been recorded on 3 consecutive nights. They kill. Dexter's having a blast, and that rhythm section is a beautiful thing.

I believe there might be a 4th single CD floating around -- might even be the one you're talking about, Agent27...

Yeah, those were the only 3 I knew of. And you're right, the 3 CD's are from July 20-21, 1967. The material on "Both Sides of Midnight" comes from the 20th, the material on "Take the A Train" comes from the 21st, and the material from "Live at the Monmartre Jazzhus" comes from both nights.
