this is a bit of a large download, at 1.3 gb, and will take a while, but it’s at 24 bits – 48 khz.  i was going to downsample it, but (obviously) decided not to.  this is a lovely show, but given the equipment that i use, there’s not really a payback in sound quality for the additional file size at 24/48.  and it is good, like the other shows from sunside that i’ve downloaded.  if i make it to paris instead of madrid, sunside is on my to-do list.  for now, it’s a stroll over to clamores jazz or bogui jazz whenever i’m down from dublin (as just this moment); a change of pace from my usual haunts.

here’s one from dublin!  this was recorded over 5 days, two songs at a time, by ‘johnos’, which took some real dedication.  unfortunately, there’s no more live jazz on irish radio since the blue of the night.  maybe the odd piece, coincidentally.  and there’s often a live song or two on arena (though seldom jazz) — that’s a fantastic arts program and fortunately falls right when we happen to be listening to the radio.  swings & roundabouts, i guess.

i [i.e. johnos] have attempted to name some of the tracks but i am not familar with the band of
course all info is only my stab .the sound is very good but due to the nature of the
broadcast it varys a bit i have removed the dj intros over the week as it becomes repitive.
on friday i was away from home and reciption was a bit scratchy still enjoyable.i have included
two mp3 samples one with the hiss at the end.

krzysztof komeda quartet with tomasz stanko - 1967, polish television "jazz w filharmonii"

this was seeded recently enough on dime by ‘davidraphael’, in video format, which i’ve demuxed. the sound quality is very good. it was seeded as “requiem for john coltrane” (a.k.a. “nighttime daytime requiem”) but on www.komeda.art.pl it’s just “nighttime daytime requiem”.  either way, allaboutjazz.com says that it “was written as a response to the news of the death [Read more…]

dee alexander - evolution ensemble + ernest dawkins - 27 august 2009, piazza del nuraghe, sant'anna arresi, italy

i’m still only listening to the first half of this, haven’t gotten to the second half with ernest dawkins, but (despite having no memory of this show, much less the 2nd half) am uploading it anyway.  it was shared (and maybe recorded?) by ‘jazzrita’ in early sept 2009, which is a pretty good lineage. dee [Read more…]

emilie-claire barlow quartet - 17 april 2009, mississauga, ontario, canada

here’s a very cheery show from almost a decade ago.  this performance was just after the release of “haven’t we met”, presumably part of the tour to promote that album.  this was shared on dime in mid-2011 by ‘plaz_restore’. there is one little glitch, a 9-second clip from a comedy skit in the middle of [Read more…]

i think that i don’t like the organ, and then i pull a show like this out of long-term storage while loading up the usb drive for a trip.  this great show was shared by ‘frekem’ in sept 2010. richard “groove” holmes quartet international jazz fest amsterdam, netherlands 29 september 1985 richard “groove” holmes (org) [Read more…]

music really does pass down through families, as this show by rené mclean, son of jackie mclean.  musical families, theatre families, etc etc.  mclean really seems to stretch his legs a bit on this, just taking a run at what he wanted to play.  it’s really nice, and must have been mesmerizing in person.  that [Read more…]

i’m on a little mini-break, this august bank holiday weekend, and am feeling great between the break, seeing old friends, the amazing weather, etc etc etc.  the trusty usb drive, however, is gathering dust at home as i forgot it.  fortunately, a rather embarrassing number of usb “thumb” drives in the car manage between them [Read more…]

well, it’s been far too long without posting something with the word “groove”.  cooked up a nice dinner and afterwards was listening to this.  from downstairs, the family shouted “stop tapping your foot!”  ’nuff said, here it is.  over dinner, we were listening to corcoran holt (who i saw recently playing with kenny garrett in [Read more…]

as for so many musicians i like these days, dime was my introduction to ambrose akinmusire.  the line up is what his website calls his “extraordinary working quintet”.  websites are so prone to hyperbole, but this is a fantastic group, and trumpet, sax & piano is wonderful & versatile combination.  these fm recordings from sunside [Read more…]
