The AACM played 6 different shows in three days, with 6 different programs, by six different composer. All six of them will be broadcast by italian radio.
This show is just one long piece of music composed by Ann Ward (and Douglas R.Ewart?) that I divided arbitrarly in a few shorter fragments. Later included in the folder, marked as track t00, a long radio introduction in ITALIAN - this intro runs for 7'58", you can skip downloading it if you don't understand italian.
Also included the usual magical cover artwork by FASTONE, whom thanks are advised to.
EDIT: we are actually waiting for fastone to provide us with a back-cover with possibly an updated tracklist, this will be added in the comments section, for the moment we only have frontcover and booklet.
due to the fact that the radio announcer Pino Saulo says during the introduction of the AACM2 show that "the last song fades out because of recording space and I apologize for the rest of the set not being recorded", I am assuming that all these Umbria Jazz 2009 sets are recorded on removable 80 mins media (such as blank MDs or CDRs). So, the bad news is that these Umbria Jazz sets are all possibly incomplete, and the missing tracks/encores, where there are any, are not even recorded: the good news is that these broadcasts will all fit one only CDR... But, as I said, this is just my assumption.
(t00-radio intro by Pino Saulo) 7.58
t01 piano solo by Ann Ward 8.57
(t09-radio outro) 1.54
running time : 78'02" (without radio intro and outro)
with radio intro and outro, it would be 87'54"
FM radio broadcast by "Il Cartellone - Radio 3 Suite Jazz", Radio 3 RAI [third channel of Italian national radio], on wednesday 12 August 2009, 22:38 hours.

note that due to disk space limitations, I will not be able to keep seeding this torrent for a long time - I will abandon the seed in a few days, maybe remove from HD these wav/flac files, and keep only my own CDR. Too many things to upload. In case of seeders going missing, enlist yourself as a leecher and some seeder will come back, and you are anyhow welcome to try and ask for additional torrenting...
FFP included - if uploaded on other trackers or reseed (and you are welcome to do both), please include original infofile. Also, if not satisfied with my offering, you are welcome to remaster/retrack/whatever and repost, but please always clearly state where/who did you have this material from and keep original infofile.
