This is a radio recording of this great new band made in April 2009 just after the studio recording made in Torino, Italy that was released in September 2009 on AUAND Records. Coming fresh from the studio, this band was firing on all cylinders on this gig.
A meeting of some of the hottest players in Europe and Bobby Previte, the Pan Atlantic Band began in 2008 after Previte met Gianluca Petrella. Hearing so many great European musicians in his years of touring, Bobby wanted to get a chance to play with more of them. So he asked Petrella, the trombonist, bandleader, and rising star of Italian music, to join the band. Next he looked towards Vienna and found Wolfgang Puschnig, the legendary saxophonist who has led many bands, and has played with Carla Bley and many more great musicians. On piano his good friend Marc Ducret recommended parisian Benoit Delbecq, a deep thinking pianist equally at home with the music of John Cage as he is with jazz. Finally, the fantastic Danish electric bass player Nils Davidsen joined, and the international PAN ATLANTIC band was complete.
All new music. A stellar performance and a pristine recording. includes BOTH sets of music, over TWO hours.
