This is the last album of the famous Jazz at the Pawnshop sets recorded live at the Pawnshop jazz club, recorded on the second night of a memorable live recording in December 1976. Tonight the Arne Domnérus quartet is augmented by Lars Erstrand on vibes.
Jazz at the Pawnshop is considered one of the most famous audiophile albums in music. Recorded over two nights at the intimate Pawnshop jazz club in Stockholm, both the musicianship and the engineering came together in a magical symbiosis captured on this enduring classic. Recording engineer Gert Palmcrantz used one pair of microphones spaced eight inches apart for the main pick-up, with a couple of microphones placed to register the “live” atmosphere and a few discrete support mikes, all recorded on a pair of two-track Nagra tape recorders in the restaurant kitchen!
