Tchicai/Fewell/Tracanna/Della Porta/Manzi - Big Chief Dreaming

John Tchicai teams up with an Italian rhythm section for a light, ECM-style session. Each member of the group contributes a few tunes, so there is a variation in style across the album, but mostly they play it pretty safe across the board.

1. Mellow guitar-led ballad
*2. Driving drums with an (American) Indian sound
*3. Quick sax chased by guitar
4. Mellow lounge jazz
5. Soft and slow, swirling
6. Med tempo bop with long drum solo
7. Lively swing
8. Guitar-led ballad
9. Guitar / sax duo
*10. Light and speedy drums and sax
11. Slow and stately
*12. Bluesy Monkish bop
