Gianmaria Testa - Ludwigsburg 2007

A bit of a departure, this post features Italian singer/songwriter Gianmaria Testa, backed by a mighty fine band including Piero Ponzo on reeds and flute, the frequent sparring partner of Carlo Actis Dato.

As I don't really know anything about Testa but just like this show, I will shut up and let the music do the talking (yeah, I know, I know...)

For once, there's an MP2 and a FLAC version (as I burned this to CDR for my own pleasure):

MP2 @ 256 kbs + info:

Both versions should be fully tagged.
