the first half of this show is mostly all about esther phillips, and  the second half is more chelsea wilson’s own compositions.  the show is a whole lotta fun!  there’s a bit about the band at the time, and pics, on this page about a show she did on 14 sept 2014.

i don’t see a lot of jazz from australia on dime (or i miss it?)… what i do have are mostly female jazz musicians, including shows from the sydney international women’s jazz festival, and — coming back to chelsea wilson — a 2014 recording from the ‘women of soul’ series that she produces.   maybe i’ll give that a listen next, make it a australian soul morning.

original seeder’s comments:
full credit to the band also. i don’t know the names of the individual players otherwise i’d be crediting them on here also. [i’ve identified most of them – pete]
it was a small crowd but a fun show which i’m glad i attended (i was thinking of not going). there were a couple of mistakes/false starts but this didn’t take away from what a very enjoyable show.

chelsea wilson is a melbourne based soul & jazz singer who (after being knocked back by a number of record labels) independently released her debut full length album “i hope you’ll be very unhappy without me” earlier this year which has been getting some serious accolades.

theo crocker - 5 dec 2016, duc des lombards, paris, france

not that the old jazz giants aren’t wonderful, but they’re also gone or will be soon.  so it’s nice to run across younger jazz musicians, like theo crocker, or avishai cohen, vijay iyer, gina schwarz, ambrose akinmusire, melody gardot etc.  and of course, there are the jazz musicians that you might see in small local [Read more…]

here’s a pairing of two greats, from 30-odd years ago.  ubu shared this on dime and also on his now largely quiescent blog, in 2009, after some well-detailed edits (thanks, ubu).  some interesting comments there, including from preslives, who wrote “…the date with joe henderson may disappoint some familiar with their classic blue note output, [Read more…]

despite having a couple of their albums, i’d forgotten about this show!  but it was close to william parker alphabetically (if in few other ways) & so i noticed it.  a lovely performance of “old-time jazz, klezmer, cabaret”, as timsmith described it.  if you like this, i’d also recommend the man overboard quintet (which also [Read more…]

william parker’s music demands my attention.  so i don’t listen while working, reading, or anything really.  rashly, i put this on yesterday, kind of at random, and didn’t get much done for an hour.  good to do that once in a while, we all should probably do that more often. william parker raining on the [Read more…]

here’s another show featuring the clarinet (though not as clarinet-focused as the last post).  the two shows work well as a companion pieces, on a rainy good friday afternoon here.  it’s easter and spring is definitely here. and such a nice line up too!  incidentally, airelle besson’s website shows that she’s coming to ireland on [Read more…]

anat cohen is another from that musical family, who have featured here a couple of times already, both avishai cohhen and of course the three cohens, so now we’re only missing yuval.  i must say, i love their music.  and anat’s clarinet is a bit more laid back and (as i always think of clarinet, [Read more…]
