Live at the Black Sheep: San Francisco 1961
Earl Hines was one of the great jazz pianists, and was often dubbed the first modern jazz piano player. However, he enjoyed substantial success and popularity during the New Orleans revival of the '50's, playing with a variety of line-ups. Especially in San Francisco, which was a hotbed of the heightened interest in traditional jazz. This collection comprises six previously unreleased radio broadcasts recorded 'live' at the Black Sheep Club in San Francisco in 1961, which are part of the archive of largely unreleased material known as the Ackerman Collection.
