I think that's a great record -- and atypically lyrical since Martino usually likes to burn.

Recently, I had a chance to see him live and I brought that very LP for him to sign.  When I handed it to him, he looked at me and said, "Ah, I see that you're a romanticist."  I just laughed and said, "I guess so... but I love ALL of your music."  I only spent a few minutes with Martino, but he seemed like a genuinely kind, friendly person.

Interesting! I really enjoyed this one. Somewhat surprised because I am not a fan of electric piano. For some reason in this setting it worked beautifully IMHO. Very understated and a beautiful synergy with Martino's playing.

Thanks for your input Hutch!!

I'm actually listening to this album via the differently sequenced material on the Mosaic set, disc 6.

I've let this set sit on a shelf a long time, time to revisit it. Not a big Billy May fan, and I enjoy little doses of Anita, not disc after disc. I may listen to this over the coming week one disc or part of a disc at a time. 

Absence hasn't exactly made the heart fonder of this material, but it is a nice change of pace from what I've been listening to the last week and the mastering (by Malcolm Addey) is quite good.

Cool !

His signatures are a real work of art too. Not to be missed !
