"Musically, this album is exactly what it should be. Tristano, Konitz and Marsh play beautifully. Listening to this collection should be like sitting through an excellent set at a club. The problem is: These performances were captured on a wire recorder, which was (decades ago) a fairly convenient machine for audial documentation. But it never could provide decent musical sound quality, and this CD provides us with a painfully typical example of that fact. I'm not talking about clipped highs or booming bass; essentially there are no highs or lows.However, it must be reiterated that the quality of the playing is truly excellent. If you love this music and these musicians, you'll be glad you purchased "WOW". It's a wonderful set. But if you've never heard the Tristano School's sound, get your first taste from another source. This particular CD is for initiated collectors only."
