Sound: A -

Combined original tracks 4 and 5 ("Island Birdie") to restore complete track with pitch adjustments.
Some pitch inconsistencies still remain due to the compromises made when adjusting a constantly changing speed/pitch discovered in many of the tracks, as well as the more obvious problems inherent in some slightly out of tune instruments here. I could be projecting, but I seem to sense McCoy's dissatisfaction with the piano he was playing reflected in his solos at times.
Phase offsets were corrected to the extent possible. Track 1 seems to be mixed in a way it is somewhat out of phase but also uncorrectable.
