all packed up, just waiting to fly out on monday.  meanwhile, i downloaded the 3rd of three consecutive nights of the horace silver quintet, from 1976.  two nights at the umbria jazzfest, after which the quintet decamped for juan-les-pins.

in a bit of serendipity that i’d not noticed before, a song missing from the 20th  is included with the show from the 21st.

one other thing: the info files aren’t always right, but in comments on dime, the seeders confirmed that the dates are all in 1976.  not 1977 or 1986.

so enjoy a mini “horace silver fest” as i wing my way westward.

offsite link:  john surman / the trio - 30 jan 1970, jazzhaus, hamburg germany

after listening to this yesterday & this morning, i was thinking of uploading this show, but found that it is already available at galatabridge, a monographic website that attempts to provide a chronological list of recordings featuring John Surman, be they commercially-released albums, radio or TV broadcasts, audience recordings, film soundtracks or otherwise. if you like [Read more…]

robert glasper trio - 24 feb 2015, village vanguard, new york city, ny usa

here’s another musician that i don’t have a lot by.  this full show (early & late sets) was seeded by ‘mottsmcg’ on dime in 2015.  according to robert glasper’s website, he’s performing in dublin in july, but as the robert glasper experiment, which is rather different than the robert glasper trio which we have here.

julian & roman wasserfuhr - 23 jan 2015, stadtkirche, darmstadt, germany

lately, i’ve been listening more to groups for whom i have few, or even only one, show (not to take away from the many great, and sadly often late, jazz musicians, from whom i might have rather more shows or cds).  generally, those are groups less familiar to me & there’s a tendency to comparatively new [Read more…]

barbara thompson  & medici quartet - 17 nov 1995, queen elizabeth hall, london uk

i must have seen something about barbara thompson earlier this week and forgotten it, because the other day, there was a search for barbara thompson & also her homepage, inexplicably open in my browser.  some mid-spring fugue perhaps. it all ended with me listening to this.  with a lot of kurt weill, you know it [Read more…]

cécile verny quartet - 11 february 2009, funkhaus halberg, saarbrücken germany

when i decided to upload this here, i realized that i’d also reseeded it on dime, almost exactly 3 years ago.  this was originally shared on dime by franka, almost exactly 8 years ago.  i guess april is “cécile verny month” around here…  it’s a topnotch fm recording, in mp2/320. www.cvq.de www.berndheitzler.de cécile verny quartet [Read more…]

marion brown - tokyo, 18 nov 1979 & new york, 7 sept 1985

this “twofer” of shows by marion brown were both shared on dime by woessner in sept 2014.  they’re very different shows, as marion brown is solo in the 1985 new york performance.  given how the term “avant garde” pops up in most bio’s of marion brown, and that it’s a solo, i’d expected the sort [Read more…]
