Great show. Jenkinson came alone first & played 5 pieces on electric 6-string bass, actually using it as a bass, a guitar, or a percussion --- hence the "hit" sounds // no electronics, no effects. Parker played a piece on soprano sax (litteraly breathtaking) They joined forces for 2 more pieces, electric 6-string bass & (i think) tenor sax. It has been a pain to normalize, since the dynamics were incredibly changing --- all applauses have been lowered, and i used some limitation to bring Jenkinson's quiet parts upfront. The first 2 minutes have mic setting sounds. Some people happy, some others not, during Parker's solo part. The acoustics in La Cité de la Musique are incredible, and while this recording won't do justice to every nuance, the sound is quite good. Enjoy !
