Back to low-fi mono

In what was only his second live performance as a singer, the other night Kurt Reichenbach held a full house totally spellbound with an 80-minute presentation that was one of the best such shows I've ever witnessed. It was especially fascinating to me because I happened to be aware that the pianist with whom Kurt HAD BEEN rehearsing secured a last minute high-paying road gig, and Kurt only had a few hours to rehearse with a total stranger of a new pianist, Jim Cox.

Fortunately, I recorded the evening. A fairly crude artifact, but I think you can tell from the track linked here how good Kurt and Jim sounded together. Did he even take a breath in his high speed interpretation of this great song from "The Yearling"?
