I have long been a fan of Vince Guaraldi and I jumped at the chance to see this album performed live! The venue itself is extremely small, with legal capacity at 99 (including artists and tech members). I would say between my girlfriend and myself, there were at most 15 people which is a shame given that this group gave a wonderful performance. I must also apologize as I was fighting a cold the entire time so if you hear crinkling, etc., I'm reaching for a Ricola. That being said, I had a hassle of a time editing this and amplifying as my recording came out VERY low despite my checking the levels. We were seated on the extreme left side of the hall and unfortunately, there was a heater vent above us so you will hear this on the recording. I also edited out most of the clapping since mine is very loud and jarring. If anyone wants to improve upon this, I'm more than happy to provide the master file!

Enjoy this folks!
