VSOP #50 THE METROPOLITAN BOPERA HOUSE: FORMIDABLE!
Danny D'Imperio (drums), John Marshall (trumpet), Gary Pribek (alto sax), Tardo Hammer (piano), Dave Shapiro (bass).
The MBH's second recording session took place in 1987 at Al Basi's studio in New York. Tardo Hammer replaces Steve Ash on piano. This recording triggered the lawsuit filed by the Metropolitan Opera House against the group. In the end, John Marshall settled and agreed to change the name in consideration for a payment sufficient to produce another recording!
ONLY AVAILABLE IN LIMITED QUANTITIES. AFTER THEY ARE GONE, THERE ARE NO MORE.
