Hi ya'll this is my last post for a few days...away on work duties..sigh!!!
Anyway, this album is available to buy at dusty groove etc (although sold out i belive there for the moment...) but i dont think its had a full album posting on the blogs but dont quote me on it lol!!!
as quoted.. at dusty...
"One of our favorite-ever Lee Konitz albums -- a really unique session with a wonderful kind of sound! The record is one that might not please all Konitz purists -- as Lee plays a bit of Varitone sax and flute in addition to his usual acoustic alto. However, the set's got an amazing edge that you don't really hear in his other work -- and was recorded in Italy in 1968 with a hip group that's working in a tight modal soul jazz mode. The other players include Italian luminaries Enrico Rava on trumpet, Franco D'Andrea on piano, and Giovanni Tomasso on bass -- and the group grooves in a way that Konitz ensembles never do, pushing Lee to do these solos that actually open up a bit more than usual, almost even showing a bit of the spiritual jazz influences of the time. Titles include "Komonia", "Midnight Mood", "Take Seven", "Tune Down", and "Terre Lontane"

Cant say iv seen the original vinyl for sale, so im interseted in its value anyone???
