I can not remember the set they played, but I have a good guess. This Quartet made one LP recording in December 1975: Eastern Rebellion. You can listen the whole album in Spotify. (Afaik, this is the only record made by these very same members.)

So I help my memory and believe we heard in Pori half a year after the release of this record at least some of the following tracks: Bolivia, Naima, 5/4 Thing, Bittersweet and Mode For Joe.
