1975 Italian Jazz Album on Vinyl LP.
First Time on Vinyl in Nearly 50 Years!

Pupa O Crisalide is a body of evocative recordings with three different lineups, and, thanks to Dialogo Records, this fantastic album by Enrico Rava finally sees the light of day for jazz lovers. With the Italian Giovanni Tommaso, Bruno Biriaco, Franco D'Andrea, Michele Ascolese, Mandrake and Tommaso Vittorini in "Pupa O Crisalide" and "Giromondo," the American David Horowitz, John Abercombie, Herb Bushler, Jack DeJohnette, Warren Smith and Ray Armando in "C.T.'S Dance" and "Tsakwe" and the the Argentines Finito Ginbert, Matias Pizzarro, Rodolfo Mederos, Ricardo Lew, El Negro Gonzales, Nestor Astarita and El Chino Rossi in "El Samba Graciele," "Revisione Del Processo N.6" and "Lingua Franca."

Enrico Rava was the first Italian jazz artist to represent the country internationally, born in Trieste in 1939. Rava's music at its best is a mix of Central European and Italian culture.
