the "I Concerti di Un Certo Discorso", are a piece of the history of this music, and if the RAI is not the company that is, we would have all the opportunity to hear the rare tracks.

Fortunately there are crazy fans like us, who help us to not forget.

thanks a lot,

this is truly superb, much better than the rai bb with chris mcgregor & co. ( i thought)...... beautiful , most of the material seems to be from around 6... one of my favourites from that era ... and surely among the best ecm records ever.... and wow the way E Parker blows his nuts over KW's haunting plaintive pastoral tunes.... leaves one breathless , he too no doubt... given the sheer ferocity of his blowing.....
the bleed through from what was previously on the tape almost sounds like a ghostly pentimenti of Keith Rowe's schtick, especially in the passages during B Guys scrabbly amplified solos.....

Any chance that the Mengelberg post comes up ?

Mark said...

I'm with Wallofsound - even down to the thanks! (And I can never get enough of Sotise and his/her good ears, either...)

And, of course, thanks to you for hosting and finding all this good stuff!

Grazie mille Riccardo, this must be superb. And Sotise's impressions make me even more eager to listen !

inamorata said...

Amazing stuff! Track 1 is "Smatter" from Wheeler's Gnu High album with Keith Jarrett on ECM.
Thanks for the great post (and so many others...)!

Just starting to listen to it, and it's great! inamorata, thanks for the track 1 ID -- I knew it was familiar, and not from Around 6, but I'd have been listening to my Kenny Wheeler albums all day to try to track it down. Which is not such a bad idea.

Really digging Barry Guy's work on the first track -- he almost sounds like a noise guitarist, kind of like Derek Bailey's playing on the long track of "Song for Someone."

matt w said...

Track 2 is Mai We Go Round from Around 6.
