90's recording jazz, in a diner


hi all. back in the 1990's i had a cd that was a jazz group that sounded like they were playing in a diner. you could hear people talking, dishes and silverware clanging and such. no idea what the group or cd was. does it sound familiar?

Jazz at the Pawnshop maybe?
Definitely Jazz at the Pawnshop. Available in 88/24 from HD Tracks here or in numerous formats over the years, many of which are available on Amazon, including a 30th anniversary edition for $91. Nothing says "Jazz" like the sound of clanging dishes and people talking in the background!
What about Clifford Brown, Live at Ethels? Killer cd music and recording
"Nothing says "Jazz" like the sound of clanging dishes and people talking in the background!"

Nothing says "pop" like the sound of auto tune and focus group research beforehand.

...and lets not forget that heapin' helpin' of dynamic range compression!
I agree that "Live at Ethell's" is excellent, but it's by Clifford Jordan.
Jazz at the Pawnshop was actually recorded in the late 70's and is still A's much fun today than it ever was! I like Bill Evan's Waltz for Debbie live recording; good recording with good crowd noise.
What about, Thelonious Monk in Action, recorded at the Five Spot Cafe?
I'll add Wes Montgomery/Wynton Kelly Trio - Smokin' at the Half Note
Bill Evans Trio "Sunday at the Village Vanguard"? That has glassware, talking, silverware clinking....
yes that's it! jazz at the pawn shop! since you all mentioned the others i think i'll try one or two of those too. thanks!

hm...i do have hdtracks so i might check it out tonight yet. off topic, eek i should search first, but i've wondered if hdtracks burned to a cdrom as audio/wav from a flac file would sound as good as a purchased cd? otherwise, i know i have to get a decent dac and usb-optical or whatever they have now. the sound card i have is SBLive ext. 24/96khz. laptop makes a lot of noise though. anyway...
