Jim, plain vanilla Verbatim or Memorex have been fine for me. But the preferred archival supplier seems to still be MAM-A, formerly Mitsui. Mediasupply.com

There are four recordings of the 1956 tour online in streaming format, including this one from Berlin. I haven't listened to all of them, but this one suffers from poor balance of the sections in the ensemble (very weak saxes, less weak bones, some instruments that you don't hear at all), boomy sound on the bass instrument, too much room. These four recordings are, however, a major improvement from the 1953 tour, when every recording is a train wreck of overloaded mics and tape.
