enormous concert! great sound, great music, great interplay, great ideas!
thank you very much for this post. I've seen Roscoe Mitchell's sound ensemble last monday in Prato and (to me9 it wasn't at those levels, thou Roscoe's vision of music and sounds is always very high and focused.

Haven't listened yet, but thanks in advance. I haven't looked at your site for some time, and you have outdone yourself lately! Keep up the great, IMPORTANT work of getting this music heard, and don't let the lazy, lack of feedback get you down. Know you are making the world a much morplace by speading this art.
