Does anyone know if “Fathers and Sons” was ever released on CD? If so, can it be found anywhere?

This is the only Wynton recording I’ve never been able to locate. It is a double bill with Chico Freeman recorded in 1982.


Any info would be appreciated. Thanks guys.

I’m not sure Father & Sons ever made it to CD domestically.  I have the CD, but it is a Japanese import.  I lucked out and paid a domestic price for it too.  Lucky me.  If there was a domestic compact disc of F&H then it would have come out after I bought mine.

I wonder why it was never released on CD in the U.S.?  I wonder if someone involved wasn’t happy with their playing.
