LDB Master Series #321
Out of my 7,000+ shows and radio broadcasts, I have many concerts that were special for some reasons: the setlist, the
musicians, the venue or unexpected events. These are the ones I'd like to propose you. Most of these come from my
cassettes collection, so they will be released at a slower pace than my Master Series! But you won't be disappointed!
I will try to gather the most unusual things I have in my collection and, as always, your feedback and comments will be my
reward for all the work involved in this project.
DO NOT share this music on mp3, just convert it for your own use. Sharing mp3's is the right way to make me stop sharing
I am ok with blogs and sites to re-post my seeds - provided they are in lossless form - however I ask you to keep intact the
infos of the concert including that this is part of LDB series.
And I am referring to (and not only):
Thanks in advance.
Last but not the least, a very important message: I will not be uploading anymore @ Dimeadozen. TTD will be my new home
from now. If you want to download my shows please subscribe here and not re-upload @ Dime. Stay tuned because I have more and
more shows coming up!

The gig was indeed very good and the overall environment fabulous. The amphitheater was on the top of a hill with the Garda
Lake in the background. It was a nice summer evening, the venue almost sold-out and the audience enthusiastic, as it is very
often the case in Italy. The sound was excellent and the atmosphere very intimate. You can hear that in my recording. I am
a little annoyed in this moment because my CA-9100 is broken and I am forced to connect the CA-14 directly to the R-09 which
sometimes can bother when the music is too loud. Fortunately that was not the case that evening since the volume was nice and
gentle. Overall, a nice listening experience.
Talking about the line-up: I have always loved Chris Potter and I thought his addition to the band was very successful. Such a
talented musician fits very well into what is a Pat Metheny Trio. Ben Williams performed well, maybe a bit in the shadow, but
he was very effective. On the opposite I have some difficulties to understand the role of Antonio sanchez. His drumming is way
too strong and fast to play in a delicate environment such as trio + reeds. If in PMG environment his powerful drumming is
fitting very well, in smaller bands I find it completely out of context and honestly disturbing. I had the feeling he was
"killing" the whole music.
