Various Artists - Live From Soundscape: Hell's Kitchen

Here's another one of those rarities that I managed to find at another blog about a year ago. I had already heard the Don Cherry tracks, since those had been circulating around p2p networks for the past decade. Let's just say that the whole album rocks the house.

While you're at it, check out the review by j-bombay at Eliminate Fear Of The Unknown from that same link. No need to reinvent the wheel on my part. Hopefully j-bombay won't mind my taking the liberty to re-up this gem. It deserves to be heard.
