Understanding is a previously unreleased recording of drummer Roy Brooks captured live by the Left Bank Jazz Society at The Famous Ballroom in Baltimore, MD on November 1, 1970. Featuring a stellar band with trumpeter Woody Shaw, saxophonist Carlos Garnett, pianist Harold Mabern and bassist Cecil McBee, Understanding was recorded 5 months after the classic live album The Free Slave (also recorded by the Left Bank Jazz Society).
This recording features a full performance by great musicians at their peak, providing a “you are there” experience of the excitement of great music and an appreciative crowd. Mastered from the original tape reels by Kevin Gray, the limited-edition 180-gram 3LP set includes an extensive booklet with rare photos, plus interviews with Carlos Garnett and Cecil McBee.
