Muhal Richard Abrams - Live in Rome '79

Wonderfully recorded by my dear friend "Ilario",
this Muhal's concert remains among the best things
i've never listened by the Great Chicagoan pianist.
A true lesson about piano jazz and not only.
Higly recommended !

This should be a gem!
I saw a concert on the same tour in Florence and was fantastic

I've known and admired Muhal for 43 years and celebrate his unique talents. I hope interested parties will attend the Chicago Jazz Festival for his performances there - with George Lewis, Roscoe Mitchell and others. The Big Band concert the final night should be special.

Riccardo and Claudio, I can't thank you enough! Muhal is one of my favorite musicians in all of music, probably my favorite pianist, and to hear him in concert from the 70's is magical. Best wishes for both of you!

Can some reupload this Muhal's concert? I've got the 2nd part and I'm anxious to listen the first!

I had a listen, and it's a splendid 80 minute solo performance! Recommended!

As for your other Muhal request, I don't have it, but I'll look around.

Thanks, thanks, thanks!
I was waiting for this one, and after you reccomanded I'm sure this will be great music.

Many thanks, kinabalu, but actually this is the concert of February 11th. Is it possible a re-up also of February 10th?

kinabalu said...

@softnucleus: I didn't realise that there were two concerts on consedcutive nights, so it looks like the one I reposted here is in the wrong place. This is the only one I know I have. Perhaps some others can chip in?

Is there any chance for a re up of this? Thanks
