I saw Konitz a few weeks ago. Maybe not as good as he could be in the past, but still spellbinding. I'll listen to this with pleasure.

Igor said...

Thanks, riccardo.
Konitz and Farmer play some of my favorite tunes here. Can't wait to hear Donna Lee.

I bet you're going to Perugia to hear and see Rollins. Again.

riccardo said...

Hi Igor,
i think it's easier that i go
to Genoa to hear and see O.Coleman.

What a great lineup! I look forward to spending some time with Konitz, Farmer and the rest.

Late to the party, but so glad to have made it. Splendid lineup, super program! Thanks a bundle, riccardo.

Thanks a lot, riccardo. I had only heard a few tracks from this set before. Great interplay between Konitz and Farmer indeed.

Certainly more Lee in the future.
