D.Gillespie/J.Moody/M.Roach feat. WDR Big Band - live in Moers '81 "Charlie Parker Memorial Concert"

This comes from a request the taper of the concert ("Ilario") made me,
having i
a copy of the recording while he has lost the original. I was in
doubt about the request : this could be considered a privatistic use of
the blog, but when "Ilario" promised me a rare bottle of "Brunello di
for the upload, i've changed my opinion...

BTW, not avant-garde, but a very good concert that opened the 10th
Moers Festival : the "glorious" WDR Big Band strengthened by three
icons of the BeBop era in a program dedicated to Bird.

The photo above (taken at the concert) is by the great photographer
dear friend of us : Luigi Zanon.

Track 1 is "Now Is The Time". Thanks for this post.

@ Dan, yes of course, track #1 is
Now's The Time : i've titled first
track 13 and then i haven't thought
anymore at the same title.
I can add that, probably, Moody joins
the Band on track 3 (Lover Man) while
Dizzy and Max on track 4 (Cool Blues)

Unfortunately the link to this marvelous concert is dead. Would you be so kind to repost the concert because I collect Yugoslav musicians.
