Vince was riding a wave of popularity at this time, as his idiosyncratic style and interpretation of standard and original compositions resonated with audiences. This enabled him to form a band that enjoyed regular and sustained work, and gives this set of recordings another dimension in that they document how repertoire and interpretation shift and grow for such a group over time, as well as providing a live counterpart to the series of albums he was recording and releasing over this period. The personnel of the band changed a little over this time as well, which also changed the music, of course.

This and the next recording were made over consecutive nights of this season, to Vince’s usual packed houses.
