jack dejohnette's special edition - "one for eric"

this lineup - marty ehrlich, john purcell, howard johnson, and rufus reid, in addition to the leader -- isn't the band that made the self-titled alb (which i could listen to on continuous repeat forever) that included this toon, but i was so delighted to find this on youtube i had to post it anyway.

ADDENDUM: on the original recording, arthur blythe and david murray, the hot underground reed players the leader was prolly hoping to introduce to the mass-ass public, were fine 'n' fiery, but what always makes me cry is peter warren's beautiful arco statement over the slow theme in "zoot suite."
