Johnny Hartman, known best for his 1963 collaboration with John Coltrane, is considered by many to be one of the most gifted jazz vocalists ever, yet his discography is surprisingly limited and he never gained the recognition he so justly deserved during his lifetime.

This double CD edition contains a complete previously unreleased performance by Johnny Hartman backed by a trio - taped in 1976 from a radio broadcast in Boston. It is the first known recording of Hartman following his 1973 album I've Been There - the next entry in his discography being the October 1977 live set at the Sometime Club in Tokyo, with Roland Hanna and George Mraz - which is presented here as a 9-track bonus.

The set includes his only known versions of "Bewitched", "Watch What Happens" and "Ive Got To Be Me", along with his only two recordings of top hits "Feelings" and "The Way We Were", and his only other performance of Billy Strayhorns "Lush Life" (apart from the famous recording with John Coltrane in 1963).

A 16-page booklet with detailed information and the complete song lyrics are also included. Excellent digitally remastered sound quality.
