What Went Wrong

Sergio Armaroli | Steve Piccolo | Elliott Sharp



Sergio Armaroli occupies a strong position in the Leo Records catalogue. What Went Wrong is his fifth CD and the second with Steve Piccolo and Elliot Sharp. Is it possible to be utterly spontaneous and totally self-governed at the same time? In this new session recorded in Milan a couple of years after “Blue in Mind” (CD LR 920). Armaroli-Piccolo-Sharp have used the idea of the “standard” as a pretext for intense improvised interaction, carefully honing what by now has become a very specific, recognisable style that offers great immediacy even when it remains firmly rooted in clear self-imposed structural frameworks. Enjoy Stephen Piccolo’s writings in the booklet.
