Revolutionary Ensemble - Live in Genoa '05

This is a "special" post for two reasons : it's n°600 from the beginning
of I.S. and, most of all, this is the recording that documents the last live
performance of the legendary Revolutionary Ensemble.
Exactly six months after the Warsaw performance documented by the
Mutable Music's record "Beyond the Boundary of Time", the Three were
invited to Genoa for a single concert : here is the report of that historical
evening. In the folders you'll find also some photos taken at the concert.

Rec. live at "Teatro Gustavo Modena", Genoa, Italy,
on November 25, 2005 (mix recording)

Leroy Jenkins,violin
Norris Jones "Sirone",bass
Jerome Cooper,drums,keyboards,ballaphone,wood flute

1. Value Forfillment [Sirone] (11:20)
2. Configuration [Sirone] (06:54)
3. Pick [J.Cooper] (16:14)
4. Rumi Tales [L.Jenkins] (06:57)
5. Berlin Erfarhung [Sirone] (06:36)
6. Usami [L.Jenkins] (06:51)

Riccardo, grazie mille. I just received recently the Mutable Music album you mention, and enjoyed it a lot as I did with every album of the Ensemble I have played. I'm really looking forward to hear your document.
I had the good fortune of seeing the trio live, around the end of 2005 I believe (or very early in 2006) at the festival Sons d'hiver near Paris.
Take care

A correction on my first message : the concert I saw was on the fifth of february, 2005.

Many Thanks for this. Absolutely superb!

Frédito el philistin said...

Yes, superb indeed. Grazie mille again, Riccardo. I was not familiar with "Rumi tales" so it has a particular fascination to me, among an already fascinating program as a whole.

Take care

"Configuration" is Sirone's composition - it's been recorded several times
