These are videos that I like: Ivan Valentini Slanting 5tet at Beijing University Hall


Today’s featured videos come courtesy of saxophonist Ivan Valentini.  His 2008 release Light & Darkness was yesterday’s daily recommendation (go read it).

Both videos come from an April 2008 performance at Beijing University Hall.  The first song is “Sottane Emiliane”

Your video personnel: Ivan Valentini (alto sax), Enrico Lazzarini (double bass), Alberto Capelli (guitar), Andrea Burani (drums) and Paolo Botti (viola).

And here’s the song “Metto la Quarta” from that same concert.

And if you want to skip my write-up, you can go listen to the album, and purchase it, on the artist’s Bandcamp page.
