I've never heard this concert. Thank you very much. I have to say - in a world where blogs come and go every day, Inconstant Sol has been solid like a rock that shall not be moved. Many thanks again!

@ Preslives

Sometimes the rock needs to be shored but, for the moment, it resists...

Well, I suppose I have to live up to my moniker which, by the way, is the highest mountain in Southeast Asia, on the island of Borneo or more precisely, in the Sabah province of East Malaysia.

thanks for the Air! I wonder where that photo of McCall is from. I saw him play those Rogers drums at the Keystone Korner in '79--that may be the end of the era where cats where actually carrying their drums around the world.

hi everybody,
many thanks to riccardo for this very interesting live air recording. it is never too much air music.

by the way - track no. 4 isn't unknown - it is "untitled tango" from their first album "air song". also track 1 should be titled just "portrait of leo smith". it starts with a bass solo. i don't hear there another unknown theme or motif.

best regards.
