This show by tenor saxophonist Al Cohn, recorded Oct. 8, 1978 at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, features as a special guest another tenor sax music veteran, Zoot Sims. Their set includes several standards including “Autumn Leaves” and “Lover, Come Back to Me.”
Jose Feliciano's show, his first set from the Ash Grove in Los Angeles on Sept. 26, 1964, precedes by four years his 1968 debut hit single “Light My Fire,” which hit No. 3 on the Billboard charts in a 12-week run. Feliciano, who also in 1968 made “The Star-Spangled Banner” a top 100 hit single, goes all over the map stylistically here, with songs including “Take Me Out to the Ballgame,” “High Heel Sneakers,” which was his follow-up single to “Light My Fire,” “Samba de Orfeu,” “Flight of the Bumblebee” and a cover of the Beatles' “Things We Said Today.”
