“Recorded Live at the Monterey Jazz Festival” is a live album by saxophonist John Handy III, recorded in 1965 and released in 1966.
It is Handy’s most famous album and his debut on Columbia. The original album only features two long instrumental pieces, notable for their “free form”, a peculiar use of harmonies and unusual instruments (violin and guitar along with more “classic” jazz instruments are uncommon in jazz music).
Featuring John Handy III, Michael White, & Jerry Hahn. One of the truly great “live” performances in jazz history. Not to be missed.
Original Label. LP Columbia CS 9262 1965 *****
