Originally released under the title of Creative Music Studio recorded at the 1982 Woodstock Jazz Festival, these two albums feature great playing. In addition to Chick, Pat, and Jack, Miroslav Vituous is on bass, and both Lee Konitz and Anthony Braxton make guest appearances. Chick is in especially good form. These recordings have been rather scarce in recent years, so definitely worth the d/ls, if you're fan of these musicians.
