Buddy Collette Quartet - Club Date (Live TV 1991)

The Club Date program was produced and directed by Paul Marshall for KPBS-TV, San Diego, in the late  1980s. Featuring some of the most noted jazz ensembles, the goal was to re-create for the television audience the traditional jazz set -- a short concert performed in an intimate nightclub setting -- using stereo sound, intimate camera shots and a live audience.

Here's a little music video featuring Wes Montgomery on Thelonious Monk's perennial classic 'Round About Midnight in the company of Melvin Rhyne on organ and Paul Parker on drums. Originally included in Riverside 1156 LP, this is a rip of 45rpm Riverside REP 3 212 using high quality equipment. Results speak for themselves, so much more musical information is retained inside those 45rpm grooves. Enjoy
