survivor69’s comments:
it’s very hard to file this as a jazz combo, but found no better options…
their sound fuses souljazz, bossanova and electroswing (with some jamesbrown funk at the end of the set), in a way that reminded me of working week, carmel (or sade), but never that good, with something from the nineties as morcheeba, and the sort of tunes you would find in mario biondi or some nicola conte… also included in this folder as track00 a short introduction in italian with bio notes and commentaries – this intro runs for 1’57”, you can skip downloading it if you don’t understand italian. the set was kinda abruptly edited to have it fit the 90mins radio show

here’s what i was listening to this morning as i tried to fix my win10 start menu.  time will tell about that project, but at least rediscovering this  show meant the morning wasn’t a complete waste.  on the dime tracker webpage, someone asked the uploader “so you caught two sets at the vanguard and still managed to see this show?”  sounds like quite a day.

naoaki-san requested some kenny barron (among other things) on the posting here of a benny green show.  actually, to digress, that show is a bit of a magnet for requests (ok, it now has two…), so i probably should put up another benny green.  anyway, i did find this, which was the first of three nights [Read more…]

stanton moore jazz trio - 21 nov 2014, cotton club, tokyo, japan

i know i’ve said before things like “what is it with groups led by drummers?”  maybe, just maybe, i like drums more than i realize.  anyway here’s another one! ok, so, and this is a bit freaky, doing the internet research on this, guess who’s at snug harbour in new orleans this tuesday?  yes, stanton [Read more…]

lounge lizards - 7 nov 1981, philharmonie, berlin, germany

the lounge lizards seem to have always been lurking somewhere on the edges of the music i’m listening to, going back to around the time of this concert.  a track on a college radio station, an lp, or later a cd, at a friends house, etc etc.  and now this show from almost 40 years ago [Read more…]

nice to hear a male jazz singer for a change (though, tbh, i tend to prefer the female singers), and sachal vasandani is super.  rather frustratingly, sachal vasandani was at arthur’s pub here in dublin back in october… and i wasn’t.  it was a monday night, and i just hadn’t checked what was coming up.  sigh!  [Read more…]

helen schneider "a walk on the weill side" - 26 oct 1989, hebbel theatre, berlin, germany

weill and sondheim!  in one tidy 2 hour package!  while i have a lot of weill, i don’t have much sondheim.  though i downloaded ‘sweeney todd’ yesterday, on the foot of running across this.  years ago – 12? 13?- i saw a phenomenal production of ‘sweeney todd’; an internet search suggests it must have been the [Read more…]

i was looking for a show by a different billy, which seems to be missing, and ended up listening to this.  tantalizingly, the info file says “disc one”.  where is disc two?  anyway, this performance was just 3 weeks before billy harper (& this same lineup) recorded black saint, which includes “croquet ballet”.  maybe the [Read more…]
