travelling again.  i brought a long an ssd usb drive that i’d stocked up with a bunch of music at some point in the past.  kind of interesting – what was i listening to, more or less, almost exactly 2 years ago?  there was a while when susanne abbuehl was a regular in the rotation in the car, but a bit earlier if memory serves…  uploaded in dec 2009 by ‘bleyplay’, so maybe a good bit earlier.  whatever, it still works for me, and listening to it again i remember track 5, “mane na”, was a favorite (and i still love it, so two samples today).  anyway, this show is around 6 months after, and with the same line-up as, her first album.  or at ecm records

yes, i’m a bit of sucker for music of kurt weill, of hanns eisler, and of their work with bertolt brecht.  here’s a great show that ‘unclewolfi’ shared on dime just over a year ago.  i don’t have many shows with music by hanns eisler, unfortunately.  this show, and a few tracks on a bbc [Read more…]

here’s a show that i was enjoying this evening in between phone calls.  ‘survivor69’ shared it on dime in june 2014 and described it well:  quite classic jazz.  and very cheery, i thought, a real pick me up.  survivor69 called the show parker’s mood, since these long tracks are mostly from the album “woman’s land” , and [Read more…]

erich kleinschuster - 1969 & 1970, orf studios, vienna austria

it’s the day for vienna, i guess.  had some trouble finding something that i felt like listening to (i’d been listening to a tom waits show and was thinking of posting it here, but it seems to be both on 100 greatest bootlegs and also on past daily.  sometimes, one little thing…).  but seriously, after [Read more…]

margaret parsons jazz group - 7 sept 2007, saxx lounge, charlottesville va

this is one of my favorite lounge recordings, with that bit of background noise giving atmosphere but not taking too much away from the music.  only problem (if it is that) is that you need to turn this up a bit.  a nice collection of classics, including one of my favorites ‘willow weep for me’ [Read more…]

‘survivor69’ who uploaded this on dime in late 2010 called this ‘this is “average” jazz (and i nowhere mean it badly) like you heard it hundreds of time‘.  maybe…  i was listening to it earlier today, while listening to it while working away like mad, and it was just right for the moment.  maybe ‘straight [Read more…]

i ran across this just after posting the jazzmeia horn show, and they’re good companion pieces, even if this is more than twice as old as ms. horn!  this lh&r show seems to be all over the internet (mostly bootlegs), but it always comes back to gordon skene.  and this version too was originally from [Read more…]
