this is another of the shows that i’d picked before my trip, but i had to re-upload it as getting ready to post it here, there were just too many changes to the info file (‘mikeos’ shared it on dime the day after the 11:30pm broadcast, ta!).  a lot of great jazz has come out of the uk, both musicians and performances.  sorry to see them leaving the eu.  anyway, a tight performance at maida vale back before any of that nonsense had started.  spillett’s website quotes the guardian, front & center: “straight-ahead, high energy jazz is his line and he does it with aplomb”.  ’nuff said.

well after 2 concerts posted in as many hours, here’s a change of pace:  a very interesting article on “economics of bittorrent Communities”, using dime as the example on medium, at https://medium.com/@jbackus/private-bittorrent-trackers-are-markets-1d3cc3c9bacd .  thanks to erik b. who posted the link on the dime discussion list.  not sure i agree with some of the suggestions as presented in the article (have not yet read the actual .pdf), but very interesting reading.  thanks, erik b!

here’s another jfk layover special, a bit of vocals this time.  i am very fortunate:  don’t have to change terminals, found a decent spanish tapas bar, have an hour or two battery on ye olde laptoppe.  btw, in pulling the details for this one, i noticed that the info file had no setlist info.  but, [Read more…]

this is one of a number of shows that i uploaded to 1fichier, in the rather misguided belief (supported neither by past history nor any reasonable expectation) that i would have some spare time while visiting my parents.  naturally, i remember very little except that at the time, i planned to share it here.  anyway:  [Read more…]

like the last show posted here (which also feature ranee lee), this was shared on dime by ‘plaz_restore’, and again the comments below are from the info file.  i love the comment “…and taurey butler (piano). this was only the third concert that butler played since joining the quintet two days prior.”  anyway, that’s about [Read more…]

this week, i seem to have run across the most extraordinary number of canadian groups (has this been going on all month?).  not a bad thing at all, and i’ll try to share a few of their shows up here over the next week or so.  this performance by susie arioli reminds me of some [Read more…]

hilary kole - 30 april 2014, iridium jazz club, nyc, ny, usa

here’s a treat: hilary kole live at the iridium, singing a lot of ‘standards’, though not all standards that i’ve heard much (as she comments about one song, actually).  the only glitch is that the recording cuts out 30 minutes into the second set!  this was a live webstream (so a rare video here on [Read more…]

we had a request for geoffrey keezer on piano, preferably playing standards.  i don’t have any solo shows, but there were a few which included him, including this one, that i don’t remember even listening to ever.  i really liked cd1, and would recommend this for that alone.  the concerto de aranjuez set it up, [Read more…]
