Original LP Producer: Esmond Edwards.

Principally recorded live at the Half Note, New York, New York in June 1965.  Includes liner notes by Richard Lamb.

All tracks have been digitally remastered for the CD reissue.

### Special Note regarding the original LP: although this record is on the Verve label, it actually was manufactured by Capitol Records and that is why it bears an "SW" catalog number in addition to the usual Verve "V/V6-" catalog number.  On the webmaster's own copy of this LP, the Verve catalog number is only on the front of the album and the Capitol catalog number is on the back cover, both sides of the record label and the spine of the album! The front album cover is definitely done in Capitol's paper quality and lacks the high gloss finish of typical Verve albums from this same period.  A partial label scan (magnified) to show Capitol Records Mfg. and their catalog number is below:


According to the explanation received from Claus Ogerman himself, written on September 22, 2003, he states that Capitol Records often manufactured Verve's LPs and that is why Capitol's name and catalog number appears on some (but not all) Verve records.  It should be noted that on the webmaster's copy of this LP, the paper quality and printing on the record label is poor and definitely not up to Verve (or even Capitol's) typical standards. It's almost as if the label was photocopied on dark paper.
