hi all
here's an album thats been unavailable for many years.
surprising really that smiths only large scale big band record should remain unreleased.
this album was recorded the same day and with identical line up as roscoe mitchell's sketches from bamboo.
both were recorded at the moers festival 1979,unfortunately i couldnt find an image of the cover
for more information on leo smith please go to his home page at-http://music.calarts.edu/~wls/index.html
if anyone has the cover or any other out of print leo smith albums theyd like to upload please contact me at-dipmong@hotmail.com

PLEASE BUY LEO SMITHS RECORDINGS,YOU WONT BE DISSAPOINTED THEY ARE FANTASTIC!
this is a vinyl rip to 190kbsmp3 or there abouts(note side 1 =1 track,side 2 = track 2

I play vibraphone on this record. It was not recorded at '79 Moers Festival but rather a few days later at Palm Studio, Paris/France. The Leo Smith Creative Orchestra and The Roscoe Mitchell Creative Orchestra were indeed recorded at the Moers Festival by WDR but never released.(I have a private tape)I used my vibraphone at Moers but when we tuned up in the Paris studio I gave my A as pianist Marilyn Crispell sounded her A. Ouch! The tuning in Paris was A442 versus my vibes A440. The session was delayed about an hour until an A442 vibraphone was borrowed or leased.
