"B-Side" presented by Chris Boulet and Willie Oteri

Another World Record, One of a Kind, Only one in the World, 45 hour non-stop musical improvisational jam and art event in Italy. October 9,10,11, 2005 at Factory04 in Padua (Padova) Italy with special guests drummer Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson, XTC) German drummer extraordinaire Schroeder, guitarist Willie Oteri (Jazz Gunn, Levin, Mastelotto, Keneally), P. Mike III (Hypnoise), Producer Ronan Chris Murphy (Chucho Valdes y Groupo Irakere, King Crimson, Joan LaBarbara) and a plethora of talent from around the world.

Following a successful 14 hour and 33 1/3 hour long non-stop concerts in 2004 and a very successful “45" hour jam this last April of 2005 the promoters are gearing up for “B-Side", another 45 hour long non-stop jam.

These have become world-class events drawing attention from major publications, producers, musicians and artists. There are even rumors of 78 hour and 100 hour shows to follow and a very special non-stop multi day show to welcome back the music of New Orleans.

This is a live event designed to promote live improvised music in a world becoming more and more bland from homogenized and canned music.

“45" held at Factory04 in Padua drew large crowds to witness magical moments of live improvisation featuring the talents of bass master Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel, King Crimson, John Lennon), German drummer extraordinare Schroeder (Mike Keneally, Napoleon Murphy Brock), guitarist Willie Oteri (Tony Levin, Pat Mastelotto, Mike Keneally) rare performances by producer Cookie Marenco (Roy Hargrove, Charlie Haden, Windham Hill) including a very special early morning ambient session with Tony Levin and producer Ronan Chris Murphy (King Crimson, Chucho Valdes, Jamie Walters) and jams featuring many other top jazz and rock musicians from Italy and other parts of the EU.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
