Jazz Guitar Gala at the Crow

I was going through my jazz vault and came across these old(er) audo recordings, recorded at the Crow on 14 november 2003. At the time three Dutch top jazz guitarists joined for a jam at the Crow. Martijn van Iterson, Maarten van der Grinten en Ed verhoeff. The rhythm section was top notch too. Marius Beets on bass and Marcel Serierse on drums. What could go wrong? Nothing. Superb interplay over a set of standards was the result. And loads of tremendous guitar boppin'. The whole concert was taped fortunately. The 6 tracks posted below are all great but be sure to at least listen to the extended takes  of "All the Things You Are" (over 17 minutes) and "Take the Coltrane" (over 14 minutes). "Pannonica" and "The Best Things in Life are Free" are a moderate 8 minutes but "Softly as in a Morning Sunrise" is 17 minutes of blowing again.

For the gearheads. Martijn was playing his 125. Maarten his Elferink and Ed some kind of Tele. For the tracks scroll down. Push start button to listen. I noticed that the files did not play on my iPad so maybe they do not stream on your mobile app.
