today was a pablo held day, for no particular reason but a good choice.  i nearly picked a great show where pablo held is joined by chris potter , but in the end, this organ-trumpet combination won out.  both shows are mostly his compositions, which only made the choice more difficult.

you’ll be no doubt overjoyed to know that cipjazz is now on twitter, we’ll see how long that lasts.  on the downside, though, the site was briefly hacked and searches on google have gone wonky.  i’m trying to work it all out.  it’ll no doubt hurt traffic here, but then i’ve never put much effort into “seo”.

finally, past daily has a great recording from rai of a 1962 chet baker / rené thomas show in bologna.  and the recordings seem to be in mp3/320 now, a definite improvement.  check it out.

the 2013 show by la marina band was already on dime in flac format (these here are mp3), along with the rest of the 2013 festival.  in addition to la marina band, pere navarro popped up as a guest on several other shows during the 2013 festival.  i liked both la marina band and his guest spots so much that i bought his albums (which are super, btw).

anyway, la marina band also performed in the 2012 eivissa jazzfest… so here are both performances.  i tried finding la marina band’s only cd online, but it was only available on spotify (which i don’t use) at least that i could find; it was also very hard to find links for most of the musicians.

the penultimate piece from 2012, ‘ya no juegan’, with the 2 guest rappers, works very well; i think you’ll be as pleasantly surprised as i was.

comments

la marina band were a last minute substitution for abe rábade, whose daughter was born that night.
credits for the individual songs are from a review the next day in the ‘periódico de ibiza’, at
https://www.periodicodeibiza.es/noticias/cultura/2012/08/16/78832/por-xicu.html

navarro describes ‘ya no juegan’ (written & rapped by del valle & acido) as a fusion of john
coltrane’s ‘impressions’ and miles davis’s ‘so what’.

i’ve kept the comments by josé luis lopez, the host of the rtve radio 3 ‘discópolis’ show because
they’re quite interesting (as always), but they in spanish. speaking of languages, the comments by
pere navarro (at least, i think it was he) are in catalan.

this show was just before they recorded obscure companion in march 2017.  it’s nice that such a great show has also a fine recording.  the recording method “zoom f8 + zoom f4 (synchronized)” is interesting, first time i’ve noticed two aud sources like that, but then i’m not obsessive about that sort of thing.  whatever, [Read more…]

annnnnnd here’s the other show!  scott hamilton, warren vaché… need i go on?  a tip o’ the hat to N_n. concord super band shoctor theatre “jazz city” festival edmonton, ab, canada 20 aug 1980 scott hamilton – tenor saxophone warren vaché – cornet, flugelhorn cal collins – guitar ralph flanagan – piano monty budwig – bass [Read more…]

this show had a very similar lineup to ‘the chris flory quintet featuring scott hamilton’.  coming up next, another (also fantastic but even shorter) show featuring scott hamilton, in the ‘concord superband’ with warren vache among others.  i’ve corrected the line up below (the drums & piano were swapped) but haven’t updated the text file [Read more…]

don’t be deceived by the mention below of flutes and voices:  this is a percussion concert.  while i like drums and percussion (who doesn’t?), 50 minutes of it is normally more than i care for.  but this was a serious exception!  a big tip o’ the hat to ‘carville’ and the mysterious ‘dc’. and good [Read more…]

another b3 great, joey defrancesco!  this was actually sitting quietly in a tab in foobar2000 for a while — after giving it another listen, i might just keep that tab open… no seriously,  this is a real picker-upper if you’re feeling a bit lethargic.  good party music too, not that we’re going to a lot [Read more…]

here’s a ‘two-fer’ of shows featuring sarah tandy, that i was listening to last week.  after plucking the show with silke eberhard out of the archive, i remembered the other show.  they’re nice companion pieces, and were both shared on dime by unclewolfi (another tip o’ the hat).  the second show is mostly pieces composed [Read more…]
