Giorgio Buratti-(J.Byard, D.Richmond, B.Jones,E.Preston) A smooth day ...-Durium lp, MS A 77268-1971



A rare one by eclectic Italian Jazz and improvising bassist and later electro - acoustic composer Giorgio Buratti , heard here in an impromptu studio session with members of Charles Mingus's touring band at the time..
 An unexpectedly intense foray into total improvisation, rather similar in substance and perhaps inspired by Mingus's 1961 free-cut up Collaged piece 'Passions of a man' , similarly alternating rambunctious, abrupt explosive polytonal gospel romps with elided pointillistic textural abstraction.. .
....besides which the fun being had by all involved is palpable and infectious...and very clearly audible..almost relentlessly so!

Amazing !.. what a joy to hear the great Jaki Byard in completely free mode for an entire record  , his contribution is outrageously fluid ..and certainly among the busiest and most genuinely interactive i've ever heard him..

Not much info to be gleaned online  about this particular session,
Here's a link to Buratti's website
Buratti made a string of interesting experimental albums from the late 60's to the mid 70's , some of which don't easily fit into genre classifications,one of those" Explosions "can still be found here, see the last comment by al66
ENJOY!!

PS.. this was a garage sale find years ago , the record is pockmarked with tiny indentations ... not a great copy .. to be sure.!.

Looks more than interesting! Thanks for this upload! But I always have my trouble with MEGA, and I'm not the only one. Is there any alternate link? Would be nice! Best regards.

It would be nice if we helped each other out a bit , i would appreciate it if one of the 500 or so people who have downloaded this would create a mirror, for those who cant do mega.....
i have thin pipes ,going through old telephone copper wire .. i live in a country town with a connection that's hit and miss...
so come on please... to someone with fibre optic cable speeds its a 20 minute upload ... to me its closer to 4 hours ..and it means tying up the bandwidth with no ability to browse whilst uploading .. the connection is that unstable.

Sotise,

It looks like Giorgio has a Youtube Channel.

https://www.youtube.com/user/giorburat/

He has uploaded many of his albums and some live recordings.

For anyone interested in his music, you should definitely check it out.
