heres another wonderful
concert, in very good sound
acquired in a trade with a 'friend'

anyone familiar with the ,wonderful fmp disc , touch the earth break the shells, will already have an informed view of the stunning empathy between kowald ,smith, and sommer.
well this concert adds the highly individual approach to the vibraphone of bobby naughton a neglected figure whos contributions to classic leo smith, anthony braxton, and roscoe mitchell albums, to some extent shaped my appreciation of the instrument's possibilities as something other than a merely pianistic approach, ah la say milt jackson.
all i can say about this is that, its a major statement by masters who's names should be in every lover of improvised music's lexicon, this is as great an example of aacm , post 60's free intergrating with euro free improv as one could hope to find, anyone interested in either should on no account overlook this superlative gem.
buy records by these people, visit the website of bobby naughton who has lp's and a great cd 'zoar' (all self produced on his own otic lable )for sale.
leo smith and bobby naughton's homepages are both linked to this blog.

Well done yet again, Sotise! Another gem. Thank you very much.

A question: Is the recording date 3 December 1979, or 12 March 1979?

sotise said...

glmlr, hi
its actually dec 1981, i made a mistake with the year which is now corrected.
as far as i know this tape is not listed in any discog, and has not appeared anywhere either in the blogosphere or on any torrentbay

Beautiful! Much appreciated. Great to have the FLAC-files without delay like that.
