one of the few shows organized by the Italian RAI during 1980 (see included original bill) from an idea of Pasquale Santoli to unite some famed soloists with RAI Big Band, here is Shepp paying tribute to the blues orchestrations of Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn with some classic tunes... Also included in the folder as track 00 a LONG radio introduction in ITALIAN with bio notes and commentaries, featuring a telephone interview with original promoter Filippo Bianchi - this intro runs for 12'16", you can skip downloading it if you don't understand italian - but you would be missing lots of anectodes of the time...

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...
checksum file included - if uploaded on other trackers or reseed (and you are welcome to do both), please include original infofile and also do not change FOLDER name. 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. IF YOU ARE THEN OFFERING THIS SET ON YOUR BLOG AS mp3's, PLEASE SPECIFY WHERE TO ALSO GET THE ORIGINAL LOSSLESS FILES
