here’s another bonus from my old archives, a double header from the 2002 ucla jazz/reggae festival.  they were originally shared together on dime back in 2005 and have been hiding away together on a cd for a number of years.  well worth a dusting off, especially as the cd is still readable (what is the lifespan of those things?).  a good day at ucla.

as yahoo is dropping its groups, i’ve been looking at a lot of shows that i’ve had for a very long time, while i can still research their provenance a little bit.  like this one here, that i downloaded from dime in november 2005.  i’ve always been a big fan of yusef lateef, and this show would have been from about when (or a bit earlier?) i started listening to his albums.   as you’ll see from the full info file, there was also an additional track from 1966, which i’ve not included.  btw, if a musician’s name is not a link, it’s because i could not find a website or other page of theirs (e.g. on social media).


yusef lateef
stockholm, sweden
oct 1978 (exact date unknown)

yusef lateef – sax(es), flute and vocals
khalid moss – keyboards
steve neil – bass
greg bandy – drums

01. nubian lady (kenneth barron) 13:05
02. don’t know my real name 8:19
03. all is one (steve neil) 7:53
04. dancing in the sun (khalid moss) 6:08
05. unknown 6:27
06. love chant 14:22

tt 56:17

radio sound is excellent

this must be one of the spring quartet’s very first concerts, since (thanks, internet!) they started in january 2014.  what can you say about a supergroup? it’s another off-the-air recording from wwoz-fm in new orleans.  there are a lot in circulation, and they’re always good.  great station. enjoy. spring quartet civic theatre new orleans, la.

this was uploaded to dime by ‘simmdale’ over a year ago, but i just ran across it and downloaded it on a whim — jazz fusion isn’t really my thing.  still, i enjoyed it immensely (and am actually listening to it again now).  so, thanks simmdale.  and here you go:  a little change of pace [Read more…]

well, to accompany the last show, i was going to post a fun selection of songs from the ‘great american songbook’, from a show by david torkanowsky at the new orleans jazzfest in 2017, but it seems to have been released.  fortunately, i had this superb recording from avi avital & omer avital waiting in [Read more…]

gabriele mirabassi | nando di modugno | pierluigi balducci - 27 sept 2019, jazzfestival leibnitz, austria

mirabassi – what else do you need to know?  this recording at the jazzfestival leibnitz 2018 has only one composition from each of the musicians in the trio, which is a nice balance.  like the last concert, it’s a recording (by unclewolfi, thanks) from austrian radio.  enjoy. gabriele mirabassi | nando di modugno | pierluigi [Read more…]

this has one of my favorite songs, willow weep for me, which i’ve generally only heard performed by jazz singers.  i’m not sure jones plays on it, though; sounds more like a flute, which leo wright did play (and i’ve added an “f” after his name, below].  but let’s not hold that against carmell jones!  there’s a [Read more…]

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 [Read more…]
