Editing notes:
* At 10:08 into Track 3 there was a 94-second station ID (before the song even ended). Actually after the first ID, the feed reverted to the stage (for James' between-song banter) for about 16 seconds before there were canned station IDs and announcements. I felt that fading up a few seconds of banter then fading back down again then fading up the music was pointless, so I removed 90 seconds and faded down the DJ. Track 4 was faded up by WWOZ and I left it virtually unchanged;
* There was a 0.2-second broadcast dropout at 1:28 into Track 5. It was repaired with a 1.3-second splice from a near-identical passage;
* A 0.1-second broadcast dropout and glitch was removed at 7:16 into Track 5;
* There was an 8.9-second station ID at 8:28 into Track 5; I removed about 7 seconds and applied a crossfade. The edit is less than ideal;
* A 0.2-second broadcast dropout at 3:12 into Track 7 was repaired with a 2.2-second splice from a similar passage;
* A -30db notch filter was used to remove the 19kHz FM pilot tone; and
* The entire recording was normalized by 1.06 db, then the left channel was boosted another 0.29 db, leaving about 0.10 db head room.


James Andrews & the Crescent City Allstars was scheduled to play the Blues Tent from 1:35 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. on the first Saturday of the 2024 Jazzfest.
