this was from the 1983-84 New Year's Eve N.P.R. broadcast from
across America, which was from a few different locations. This is
the complete third part of it (the 1st 2 were from more Easterly
U.S. locations) which is mostly Freddie Hubbard ushering in 1984
on the West Coast of the U.S. Freddie was in good
spirits and put on a nice show that was heard all across the U.S.A.
on this night. the only title I couldn't identify is track 12,
it's one of the better songs of the show. I don't think anything
is cut in here.
