Track 3: maybe "Reflections" by Manfred Schoof?

onxidlib said...

Does anyone have the same problem > throughout the music one can hear a annoying digital "chirping" - the music itself is marvelous!

Any clues?

onxidlib said...

@ Anonymous - yes I agree track 3 is "Reflections" by Manfred Schoof.

Thanks a lot, Riccardo!

This list is really the escape of a piece of our memory...
you also publish the live by Westbrook / Vittorini?

A complete list of concerts for Radio Tre Jazz, organized by Pasquale Santoli of the season 1979/1984, is available also here:

Thank You Riccardo! A thoroughly enjoyable set. Albert in peak form both for the hot jams with the BB and for solo moments. Great support from the quartet - I especially appreciate Paolo Damiani's bass work. I can't say I know of many recordings with him on it (anyone want to point me to some?) I have him on one with Gianluigi Trovesi (Dances)and perhaps others.
@onxidlib: I'm wondering if the "chirp" you're hearing is just the radio interference on this recording. It gets a little pesky in the quieter moments, but once the band gets cooking I cease to be aware of it. And, a "feast" it is!

Jazz from Italy said...

Two more records of Damiani, always with the great Trovesi;

Listening to this, it sounds definitely like another radio station cutting in on the frequency of the radio station broadcasting this concert

Sono alla ricerca di altre registrazioni di quel meraviglioso esperimento che è stato "I Concerti di un Certo Discorso" al Teatro dell'Opera di Roma nel 1980.
Con grande gioia ho riascoltato Mood Indigo dalla serata, intitolata Ellingtoniana, del sestetto di Albert Mangelsdorff.
L'idea del concerto grosso jazz è stata di una tale folgorante visionarietà da non essere più ripetuta.
grazie ancora!
