Gian Piero Pramaggiore, Italy

Thanks to Augusto from the Italian Prog website as he found some data on the internet for me!

It's not the best photo, but it's a start. And we have the label now.

This is Part 2 of our Rare Italian records request. See the First Born entry for more detail.

We already had more data on Gian Piero Pramaggiore than on First Born. At least we know who he is! What we do know is that Pramaggiore shows up as a contributor on some of Don Cherry's mid 70's Italian concerts on guitar, flute and voice, where he is known as Jaya Deva (and he's a music teacher).

Gian Piero Pramaggiore - Chan. 1981 Mama Barley.

On "Chan", the music features primarily acoustic guitar, soprano sax and a variety of flutes in a rock setting along with some wordless voice. Definitely a variation on the post 70s jazz fusion display. A good album, with a high energy level. It appears that Pramaggiore is currently active in conducting music workshops.

Here are the track titles:

Entrando nel Mundo
Una Ruota Brilla nel Cielo
Farfalle fra le Betulle
Canto per un Piccolo Fratello

Priority: 3

Thanks Augusto!

Pramaggiore was also part of the formation "The Glimpse" with Trilok Gurtu and other musicians.
