is there a chance we could mention that the show is from DIME (if it is in fact from DIME)?

@ upkerry

"the show" was broadcasted live by
our RAI RADIO3 during the last evening of the 7th Vicenza Jazz Festival (Saturday, May 25, 2002) :
1st set : Ernst Reijseger "Round About Monk"
2nd set : Susanne Abbuehl "April"
3rd set : Mal Waldron-Geri Allen Duo

This is my editing of that recording.

Beautiful. And the audio quality is pretty fine too. Thank you for posting this gem.

Thanks a lot! Glad to find where this one originated.

Thanks a lot!

I have endless appetite for Mal Waldron – and Geri Allen is wonderful too. And this is a piano duet that really works (because they are listening to each other so carefully and leave room for each other).

Holy Mackerel! Didn't know this happened! Seeing these three names together made my eyes pop! Thanks to all responsible for revealing and sharing this one.

Two piano sets have always bothered me. as a piano player i feel there is a strange tension and possibility of tuning being an issue. That said i will listen with interest as these two play together. Always thanks

The RS links for the flac version are offline, any chance for making this available again?

Thanks a lot in advance!!
