last month, the nice folks at ‘planetfuncamp’ (aka dime user ‘dagon333’) uploaded a 2014 buster williams show at the sidedoor jazz club in old lyme, ct.  i enjoyed it immensely (like all the planetfuncamp uploads by dagon333), in particular the saxophone, though the bass solo was definitely the highlight.

i found that i had one other show featuring the saxophonist, bruce williams (no relation to buster, a.f.a.i.k.), from a paris show by the buster williams quartet that ‘elgaucho’ uploaded about a week after that show.

just installed an iogear 2-port hd-cable kvm switch (model gcs62su).  setup was easy, & it’s working great.  the audio however follows the kvm switch, which i don’t want.  my workaround is streamwhatyouhear, so the jazz plays on both home & work computers.   also, latency on my home computer: 10-15 seconds to switch the keyboard & [Read more…]

even though i posted a george coleman show from 12 nov 1979 back in january this year, i can’t resist posting this one.  it’s a good recording but not perfect (the seeder or taper rated it b+), and oh my goodness but this goes on and on (though in fairness, it is over two nights). [Read more…]

here’s another freddie hubbard show, from almost exactly 10 years later.  why have one when two will do as well or (as here) even better?  saturday turned into a bit of a hubbard-fest around here, not stopping with two shows, but that’s all for tonight. this was (re)seeded by ubu on dime back in 2008.

finally got our car up & running, those little things like insurance, license plates, etc can be a challenge in the right (or wrong) circumstances.  so, driving to work on friday in the car for the first time, i had a handful of usb thumb drives, but out of all that, this show was the [Read more…]

vijay iyer trio - 2 july 2016, iowa city jazz festival, iowa usa

i’m not sure what made me think of vijay iyer the other day, but i ended up listening to 3 of his shows from 2016 over the course of the day today.  this one features tyshawn sorey on drums, and it took some looking to find him on the internet (“titian”, “tysion”, the list goes on… [Read more…]

jimmy heath and nat adderley - 23 july 1995, nhk 505, tokyo japan

well, i was on a bit of a heath bros kick today.  which, by the way, is quite the way to get a day’s work in.  like those old lucky ads said:  picks you up when you’re down, calms you down when you’re tense.  etc etc. started with jimmy heath and the heath brothers at [Read more…]

mccoy tyner septet - 6 july 2006, national concert hall, dublin ireland

here’s a nice show from the national concert hall in dublin that i recorded off the air & seeded on dime in 2007.  it’s a great show, and very well recorded but wasn’t so good for folks who actually attended. the rté announcer comments on the “truly tragic quality of the sound”.  and when i [Read more…]
