descriptions, reviews, &c.

"This concert came about in June of 1981 while I was touring as a single and had a rendezvous with my good friend and music mentor, Andrew Cyrille and his band Maono at a Jazz Festival in Pisa, Italy. At the time, Maono members were David S. Ware, Nick Di Geronimo, myself, and Andrew.

As it turns out, the promoters had a free slot for the following afternoon and asked me if I wanted to play. I told them I'd be gld to and I would do it solo. they agreed and it was my first solo performance which was completely spontaneous. I hadn't planned any program; I just wanted the performance to be authentic and natural as possible. the concert was performed in the Abbrazia San Zeno which has great acoustics and playing in this historic site was itself inspiring.

Because there was such a warm and receptive response to this performance I decided to share this experience with a larger audience by making this recording available."-Ted Daniel
