here’s a show by my current favorite trumpet player, avishai cohen, with his siblings.  this show was part of a 3-week tour of europe for the release of their (then) new cd “family“, released in may 2012 in europe (october 2011 in the us). they performed a number of tracks from the cd.  a great show, but i need to listen to yuval and anat a bit more too… this was shared by ‘tomyoungster’ on dime back in sept 2012.

updates nov-2018, by pete:
renamed files from “chohen” to “chohen” & corresponding corrections to filenames in the .ffp checksum
file. added an .md5 checksum file. added this updated info file, including adding instruments to the
line-up and the track times and correcting the line up. the drummer is franck agulhon per yuval cohen’s
announcement in track 3, not jonathan blake as shown in the original info file. blake was with the
group 10-16 may 2012, and agulhon 17-25 may 2012.

this ended up here sort of backwards.  i’ve flagged the occasional show as for sharing here, and feeling like listening to something that i’d be sure to like while demuxing a few more videos, i filtered the list for those shows and picked one at random.  it’s a little gem of a show, with ray brown’s very solid trio and the added spice of three guests.  so of course, i’ve ended up posting this here instead of demuxing.  ‘ladyface57’ shared this on dime back in august 2011.

to make space, i have been archiving some shows that i have only in video format and demuxing them.  here’s one that, somewhat unusually, had audio in a lossless format (still a large enough file!).  been a while since i’ve posted any miles davis up here.  and almost as long without listening to any of [Read more…]

yesterday, i played dexter gordon all day long, and this show (or rather, shows: with a companion performance by stan getz) really struck my fancy.  it’s not as originally shared by ‘itzero’ on dime in oct 2010, as i’ve added the song titles to the filenames (“05.flac” is so prosaic!), and having done that, went [Read more…]

here’s another:  french violinist didier lockwood playing with one of my favorite pianists, antonio faraò (no, not french).  curiously, as i was putting this together here, separate shows by lockwood and faraò were shared on dime.  there’s another faraò show here on cipjazz, btw. didier lockwood and antonio farao quartet duc des lombards paris, france 7 [Read more…]

following on the last post, here’s a french group that i’d noted a few months ago (yet another long delay before really coming to my attention:  cosmikd shared this on dime, back in 2011; that’s two in a row from him, actually… let’s give a big shout out to cosmikd!). it’s a disappointment that there’s [Read more…]

listening to this, i thought that it might be time for me to dig into french jazz musicians a bit more.  actually, what got me thinking that was looking up these musicians on the internet:  like gildas boclé, who apparently has a brother jean-baptiste who is also a musician; or sébastien texier, who has played [Read more…]

i downloaded a show by eddy louiss today  or was it yesterday, which really knocked my socks off.  a quick search turned up a few shows with eddy louiss as a sideman, including this one which also knocked my socks off, with both him and rené thomas in getz’s quartet.  it’s a killer combination, and [Read more…]

marilyn mazur's percussion paradise  - 19 april 2001, værket, randers, denmark

marilyn mazur is one of those names that has seemed to float at the edge of my awareness – recognize the name, know i’ve heard some, but beyond that not much.  so at some point recently, i downloaded several of her shows from dime to try and rectify that situation, including this one (which was [Read more…]
