BLACK, 180 GRAM VINYL.

This hand-numbered (to 3,000), double LP set was transferred from the original tape reels and is pressed on 180-gram vinyl, boasts 100 minutes of music and is packaged in a gatefold sleeve with an extensive booklet with essays by esteemed jazz journalist Ted Panken and jazz video journalist and friend of Bishop's, Bret Primack; rare photos by Don Schlitten, Raymod Ross and Jan Persson; plus, poetry pieces written by Bishop. The set is produced by label owner musician Cory Weeds and 'Jazz Detective' producer Zev Feldman. The double LP set consists of 2 shows recorded in Baltimore, Maryland, disc one recorded at The Madison Club on August 28, 1966 and The Famous Ballroom on February 26, 1967.

Harlem-born Bishop began his performing and recording career as part of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers on his debut Blue Note album in 1948. His bebop style continued on with gigs and recordings with Kenny Dorham, Jimmy Heath, Milt Jackson, Stan Getz, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Oscar Pettiford, Wynton Kelly and many others. In the 1960s he fronted a trio with Jimmy Garrison and G.T. Hogan. He recorded for various independent labels including Jazztime, Black Jazz and Muse Records.

The 8-track set cooks with 2 Miles Davis compositions along with standards such as 'Willow Weep for Me,' Antonio Carlos Jobim's 'Quiet Nights' and Henry Mancini's 'The Days of Wine and Roses.'
