Muhal Richard Abrams - Live in Rome '79 [2]

I've already posted here the first of two evenings with the Great Muhal
at the Roman Jazz Club "C.J. St.Louis". Here's the second with some music even more fascinating.
The photo above (January '80) was taken in Muhal's apartment at Manhattan Plaza, NYC.

As always many thanks Riccardo (and Illario) for sharing these with us, there are too few documents of this great music.

fantastic, riccardo

don't think I've mentioned it before, but I've thoroughly enjoyed listening & re-listening to the Laren concert of his that you posted some time ago - it's right up there in the very top tier of bootleg concerts I've heard & one I can't get enough of

Muhal Richard Abrams - Live in Rome February 10th, 1979

Wonderfully recorded by my dear friend Claudio, this Muhal's concert remains among the best things i've never listened by the Great Chicagoan pianist. A true lesson about piano jazz and not only. Higly recommended !
(the day after concert [February 11th] in the next future)
