Lester Bowie, Malachi Favor, Roscoe Mitchell - Live March 31, 1979 Verrona Italy.



Here is a live recording by three totally unknown musicians.
One long improvisation with appearances of some tracks that may be familiar for some of us. Played in the fall of the seventies this music is in fact more close to the early spirit of those musicians at the time when Lester was recording number 1 & 2, at the time when the band’s name was the Roscoe Mitchell Art Ensemble.

March 31, 1979 location unknown to me except Vienna Austria.

Somebody ought to release an album by these players! Always on the lookout for new talent, and these sound like nice guys.

great share thanks - in my files I have this date, march 31 1979 as Verona, Italy, Teatro Filarmonico, not Vienna, but it might be a mistake

@Rev.B
yes I hope someone will release some records of those new coming artists, we'll let you know if it happens.
@Davide
Your date can be right. In fact the problem with the bootleg recording is that due to some questions of copyrights, dates or locations can be changed. To be sure one could check the sessionnography of the musicians. But actually I haven't got time to do it.

Davide is right: the AAoC was in Verona on March 31, see this website: http://digilander.libero.it/raritalia/concerti.htm -- René

The silence is correct but the name of Verona not! One "r" only! Romeo and Juliet will be very disappointed! :-)
By the way thanks for sharing this great recording.

Jarman and Moye missed the train or something?

correct silence said...

No, the bus!.
In fact the band was playing concerts in various combinations. At the same time Moye and Jarman have also a duet and recorded for India Navigation.
