Fontella Bass and the World Saxophone Quartet - Information wanted.

Unable to sleep due to coughing and spluttering (yes, the lurgy) I was, rather aptly, tuned to Radio 5 Live's Up All Night programme in the early hours of Friday. At about 2:20 am direct from America Hamiet Bluiett (of World Saxophone Quartet fame) spoke of his sixty years' friendship with Fontella Bass. 
The death of Ms Bass on Boxing Day, had, of course, been announced earlier. The WSQ recorded three numbers with Bass on LP. I wonder, does anyone know of the recording?
(Fontella Bass died December 27 age 72. R.I.P.)
