Old and New Dreams
– Dewey Redmond, Charlie Haden, Ed Blackwell, Don Cherry
–wonderfully grooving jazz June 8, 1982
recorded at Jonathan Swifts Nightclub in Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA where I was house sound for 5 years from 1978-1983. It was a basement club with 250 capacity (that was often ignored), with a long narrow room and low cement ceilings. With such a wide variety of acts coming through there, it was a great place to cut my teeth doing live sound.
The recordings were done using the Sony MC-939 M/S stereo mic taped to the ceiling in the left/center of the room at the mixing board location half way back in the room and recorded onto a Sony Walkman Pro cassette deck.

Given the virus lockdown, I have had some Time on my hands. So, I “remastered” the show and have kept both versions here.
