this is one of two ‘tin hat’ shows that were on dime in early 2012.  i’m a little surprised at myself, forgetting all about them instead of rushing out to buy everything that they have.  or maybe tin hat just worked a lot better for me this week than 5 years ago?  then again, i can be a bit of a sucker for accordion & violin…  but tin hat are much more than that.  as they put it on their webpage,

forging a new acoustic sound that defies categorization while striking universal chords, tin hat makes freewheeling chamber music for the 21st century.

that works for me!  enjoy.

kate westbrook 'good-bye peter lorre' - 16 may 1992, festival der stimmen, bremen, germany

i gave a good few listens to this live performance of kate westbrook’s “good-bye peter lorre” last year, but didn’t get around to uploading it here.  then the sunday observer review of mike westbrook’s new album, which reminded me of it again.  if you like kurt weill, bertold brecht, etc, you might find this right up your alley.

anita o'day - july 1966, antibes jazz festival, antibes juan-les-pins france

i recently bought the 4-cd set young anita, which was a very good idea indeed, but despite that, still put this on this morning.  not a very long set, but anita’s in surprising good form (see taper’s notes below) and it’s a very warm performance.  an added bonus (for me, anyway) is tete montoliu on [Read more…]

toots thielemans - 10 oct 2004, de bussel, oosterhout netherlands

here’s toots thielemans’ european quartet live in oosterhout.  this was actually just posted on dime by “dutch_master” earlier this year (and it’s only 14 jan), but after a couple of listens i thought it should be one of few shows that get up here almost immediately.  a great recording by the late “old dutch master”!

frank vignola quintet - 6 feb 2010, the egg, albany ny

here’s another show by one of my favorite new york (or perhaps new jersey, see below) italian jazzmen, frank vignola.  mostly i’ve heard shows with only frank vignola & vinny raniolo – and you don’t want to miss one of those! – but here we have that great duo rounded out to a full quintet.
