Gato Barbieri - 1978 - Obsession

Gato Barbieri 
1978
Obsession




01. Obsession Part 1
02. Obsession Part 2
03. Michelle

Bass – J.-F. Jenny-Clark
Drums – Aldo Romano
Tenor Saxophone – Gato Barbieri

Recorded in Milan, May and June, 1967.


Backed by bassist Jean-Francois Jenny Clark and drummer Aldo Romano on this LP, tenor-saxophonist Gato Barbieri plays with great intensity and fire during these lengthy performances (two versions of "Obsession" and "Michelle"; the latter has no relation to The Beatles tune). Barbieri's playing would become, if not more mellow, much more melodic a few years later, but at this early stage he was in his avant-garde stage, playing with ferocious energy.

  2. Thanx for this fantastic album, but the three thrax presented ere are the same as on Hamba Kale, or repackaged several times with different tiutles (and awful budget line artwork) ?? Also the timing seem similar...

    thanxx
