Leader Jazz Records ST 7001 (LP, Romania)
I got this LP from Harry personally, at the Budapest intl. Jazz Festival 1990 (14.07.90)
Following his words, this rare musical document is the first, if not the only independently produced LP of contemporary jazz in Romania, produced by Harry himself.
side A quotes "summertime" several times, on a quite detuned piano, but the music has magic spirit and oscillates effortlessly between experimental jazz, romanian folk, free improv... you name it.
flac > enjoy!
