    “The Immortal Charlie Christian” recorded live at Minton’s on wax disk (with Dizzy Gillespie and Thelonious Monk) is one of my favourite jazz CDs. I love the fact that you can hear people moving around, clinking glasses, talking, and reacting to the music. Closest I’ll ever come to being there, and I wouldn’t trade it for all the high fidelity in the world.

    Brilliant stuff.
    You can hear him working towards the long eighth note lines, with some alterations in the harmony.
    Swinging very hard, emphasizing the down beat.
    Bop players moved to very even rhythmic feel, lots of alterations.

    Great stuff.
