This box is the 1st of three boxes released by Yellow Dog in 1994, as they cemented their status as one of the most prolific and important Beatleg Labels.
This box contains 4 discs, 2 of which would later be released as single discs; "The Early Years" (re-released as "The Decca Tapes" YD061 in 1995) and "TV Appearances" (re-released as "The Ed Sullivan Shows" YD062 in 1995.) The other 2 discs in this set are unique to this box set.
The sound quality of these discs is truly superb, offering some very important new material to collectors.
On Jan. 3, 1963 producer-writer Joachim Berendt organized a concert in Germany featuring some of the top American jazzmen who were then residing in Europe. Originally released as 13 songs on two LPs, eight of the performances have been reissued on this single CD; left out are five of the seven numbers from Vol. 1 (three with clarinetist Albert Nicholas and one apiece with bluesmen Champion Jack Dupree and Curtis Jones). The CD contains a pair of fine features for tenor saxophonist Don Byas (including a lengthy workout on "All the Things You Are"), ballad showcases for trumpeter Idrees Sulieman ("I Can't Get Started") and pianist Bud Powell ("'Round Midnight"), two numbers by a trio consisting of guitarist Jimmy Gourley, organist Lou Bennett and drummer Kenny Clarke, and a pair of Bill Smith originals featuring the clarinetist in a quintet with altoist Herb Geller and guitarist Gourley. A fine bop-oriented set of music by a variety of mostly underrated players.
Brain-State-In-A-Box was Neural Network's debut album, released in April 1994. Its style can best be described as "Electronic Listening Music", ranging from Ambient to more upbeat style, yet never coming close to dance/DJ material. The album received favorable reviews in the Norwegian music magazine "Puls" and in the Norwegian newspaper "Klassekampen". It was mastered entirely in Brain-State-Of-The-Arts Studios by the three members of the project; Jostein Dahl Gjelsvik, Lars Kristian Sande and Oddgeir Hvidsten.
