Recorded live in concert. Rome, Italy December 12-13, 1977 by Nicola Bernardini and at Teatro Comunale, Pistoia, Italy December 14, 1977 by Carla Lugli Originally released as Real Time – ICTUS LP 006 and as CD on Ictus Reissue Series #4 including never released before tracks and Real Time Two ICTUS Reissue Series #8 CD except #6 * un-issued All Tracks Digitally Re-Mastered and Edited By Andrea Centazzo 2005 About: It has been a pleasure finding recently in the ICTUS archive two tracks from this amazing trio concert that originally were left out from the Trio Live LP for the known media time limits. In the nightmare of non-labeled tapes and in the following archive passages, Stalks and Feline have been lost. Now this CD finally presents the concert in its original order and length fully digitally re-mastered. This record presents a performance with a classic jazz combo: saxophone, double bass, and percussion. Naturally, the percussion no longer reflects the timbre of the tonal instrument, but brushes up the executive praxis in long 4/4 accompaniments next to Carter’s extraordinary bass. All tracks on this CD were recorded live, as were most of ICTUS’ LPs, at a concert in Udine, the final show of a tour that covered all the major Italian cities. It was a magic evening. Not only did the trio burst with a creative energy that was homogeneous and interactive, but the acoustics, usually inadequate, of the half-empty sports pavilion with a capacity of 10,000 people, gave the music an ethereal transparency and crystalline purity that the recording captured and the CD newly presents in all its singular beauty.(Andrea Centazzo)
