It takes just two lines to introduce this record:

The first is that in this quartet has developed the genius of Massimo Urbani, born into a world of lyricism and expressive power, with a creative multi-language, in a space "unique", but without any border.
The second thing is that this disc, for too many years, has remained caged in its beautiful form of vinyl, without the possibility of releasing free in the space, as the stars are ...

The Definitive Roswell Rudd - HORO HZ 12 - 1979

The Jazz A Confronto series is stopped for some time.
I need three titles to complete the discography, but the "big deal" of Megaupload has again made unavailable these rare recordings.

I thought about reloading, but no one of the hosts available today seems reliable.
I'll go on randomly, hoping for a healthy law on sharing art and a higher intelligence that, probably, most of the human race don’t get even in this new century.
