Two CD live archive release. Truth, Liberty & Soul Live in NYC: The Complete 1982 NPR Jazz Alive! Recording captures the iconic bass innovator Jaco Pastorius leading a 22-piece big band on June 27, 1982 at Avery Fisher Hall in New York City as part of George Wein's Kool Jazz Festival. Featuring a congregation of the top jazz musicians on the New York scene at the time such as Peter Erskine, Bob Mintzer, Randy Brecker, Jon Faddis, Frank Wess, Lew Soloff, Howard Johnson and others, along with the legendary harmonicist Toots Thielemans as a special guest. Truth, Liberty & Soul showcases Jaco's brilliant compositions for large ensembles with electrifying energy of a live performance. A portion of the concert was previously broadcast on the NPR program Jazz Alive! In 1982, but this is the first official release authorized by the Jaco Pastorius Estate, Warner Music Group and NPR Music and contains an additional 40 minutes which never aired. Culled from the original 24-track tape reels, this is the complete concert from start-to-finish, with the sound meticulously restored for release and mastered by the original recording engineer from the broadcast, and multi-Grammy award winner, Paul Blakemore.
