Rare Jazz Live: Oscar Peterson in Italy 1966

In the exterminated discography of Oscar Peterson I have not found any recording made in Italy, also if he was here many times for concerts and festivals, and, thanks God, I've listen to him.
In these days I have found seven tracks recorded the march 26, 1966 during his exibition at the "Festival del Jazz di Sanremo".

That Festival born in 1956 was for ten years the most important italian jazz festival.
These tracks are very rare and you can find them here. (new link)
