Groundbreaking work from Italian pianist Guido Manusardi – a rare set recorded in Romania, and one of the treasures of the European modern scene of the 60s! Despite the "free" in the title, the music is actually more in sort of a lyrical modernist vein, than completely outside – very well-composed by Manusardi, and handled with inventive work on piano – plus trombone from Nicolae Farcas, tenor from Dan Mindrila, bass from Johnny Raducanu, and drums from Vasile Ganea – all working together with a crash of emotions that hint at the changes that were taking place in Italian jazz at the time, and which would emerge later in work on labels like Dire and Horo! The tenor player on the session, Dan Mindrila, is especially amazing, and his sharp angular lines are a perfect counterpoint to Manusardi's lyrical light piano solos – and titles include "Suita No 1", "Time In Bucharest", "Blues For Vally", and "Valeriana".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
