Ciao Riccardo, this is a great gift, unfortunatly I loose this concert for job troubles, thank You to share the chance to listen to it. Maybe have you Sao Paolo & Chicago Underground with Pharoah Sanders 15/01/2012 from the same festival?

Ciao Riccardo,

This entire concert is going to be released by William Parker this summer as a beautiful 2CD set on his own label Centering Records. So, thank you for "whetting appetite" a little bit up here, but if you could please take down your links (so that they are not copied and reposted, etc.), it would be much appreciated by William.

Thank you.

Hi Riccardo - I was the one who deleted the links.
I haven't even downloaded myself...

Hope you won't mind - see the comment from Steve Joerg above.

riccardo said...

@ Onxi
you did the right thing.

@ Steven and William
Consider this post a little promo to the official release.

That's splendid news! Of course, we would like to add that those who did download from here ought to buy the thing once it's officially out.

We're ahead of the curve (as usual). Ahem ...

Steven Joerg said...

Dear onxidlib, riccardo, kinabalu:

Thank you for doing so straightway, and for understanding the financial realities of the world which exists "beneath the underdog" as it were.

blessings and stay tuned...
