Keith Richards, Keb Mo, Ravi Coltrane, Randy Weston and more - Great Night in Harlem 2015, New York, Oct. 22, 2015 - FM
Here's another one that's been languishing unheard on my computer for nearly two years. Usually I find the "Great Night in Harlem" broadcast kind of boring... but Keith Richards changed all that!
Worth the download just to hear him and the band ramble through a couple of songs.
Would love to know what Sonny Rollins was thinking as Keith was rocking out.

There is a pretty severe low-pitched rumbling noise for the first few minutes of the broadcast and recording. It goes away about 45 seconds into Track 2.
There were numerous very short (about one-tenth of a second) dropouts throughout that I removed... Hopefully I caught them all. In addition, some longer dropouts remain, including:
* 2-second dropout at 3:47 into Track 15
* Two dropouts totalling about 10 seconds about 2:35 minutes into Track 22.
Additionally, some WWOZ radio announcements were edited out:
* A 13-second WWOZ announcement edited out during the applause at the end of Track 18.
* Another 7-second annoucement a few seconds later was edited out
* And yet another announcement, 11-seconds long a few seconds after the last one was also edited out -- all at the end of Track 18
* A 9-second station ID after Track 19 was removed
* And finally, an 8-second ID after Track 24 was removed.
