Hi Soni,

It is a great album, if fact it's a great TWO albums! Most are familiar with the 1964 "Green Covered" Stan and Bill album with Elvin (!) on drums. Lesser known, although now it's pretty ubiquitous too, is the "But Beautiful" record from 1974. A live recording in which Stan is essentially a guest with Bill's working trio of the time. For me, the 1974 recording is better, although they are both great. "The Peacocks" and Stan's Blues on the '74 album have some of Stan's most beautiful playing. I'm transcribing Stan's Blues right now...
