May 212017

after listening to this yesterday & this morning, i was thinking of uploading this show, but found that it is already available at galatabridge, a monographic website that

attempts to provide a chronological list of recordings featuring John Surman, be they commercially-released albums, radio or TV broadcasts, audience recordings, film soundtracks or otherwise.

if you like john surman / the trio,  well, you’ve probably already found the site.  if you are less familiar with the trio, then head over to galatabridge and have a listen to this great show by the trio, from jazzhaus, hamburg germany, in early 1970.

the version there appears to be the same as the one seeded on dime in aug 2016 by tomp

May 202017

here’s another musician that i don’t have a lot by.  this full show (early & late sets) was seeded by ‘mottsmcg’ on dime in 2015.  according to robert glasper’s website, he’s performing in dublin in july, but as the robert glasper experiment, which is rather different than the robert glasper trio which we have here.  with luck he’ll come back to dublin in a “trio” incarnation.  rather nice having that sort of breadth of styles, even if you prefer one of them, isn’t it?

additional notes: these were seeded on dime on 26-feb-2015 (early show, seed #523771) and 6-apr-2015 (late show, seed #523771) by mottsmcg. the early show has a file or two with the wrong date (the 25th), but they are both from the same night, 24-feb-2015. i created new ffp and md5 files in addition to this combined info file, but all original files are unchanged.

julian & roman wasserfuhr - 23 jan 2015, stadtkirche, darmstadt, germany

lately, i’ve been listening more to groups for whom i have few, or even only one, show (not to take away from the many great, and sadly often late, jazz musicians, from whom i might have rather more shows or cds).  generally, those are groups less familiar to me & there’s a tendency to comparatively new [Read more…]

barbara thompson  & medici quartet - 17 nov 1995, queen elizabeth hall, london uk

i must have seen something about barbara thompson earlier this week and forgotten it, because the other day, there was a search for barbara thompson & also her homepage, inexplicably open in my browser.  some mid-spring fugue perhaps. it all ended with me listening to this.  with a lot of kurt weill, you know it [Read more…]

cécile verny quartet - 11 february 2009, funkhaus halberg, saarbrücken germany

when i decided to upload this here, i realized that i’d also reseeded it on dime, almost exactly 3 years ago.  this was originally shared on dime by franka, almost exactly 8 years ago.  i guess april is “cécile verny month” around here…  it’s a topnotch fm recording, in mp2/320. cécile verny quartet [Read more…]

marion brown - tokyo, 18 nov 1979 & new york, 7 sept 1985

this “twofer” of shows by marion brown were both shared on dime by woessner in sept 2014.  they’re very different shows, as marion brown is solo in the 1985 new york performance.  given how the term “avant garde” pops up in most bio’s of marion brown, and that it’s a solo, i’d expected the sort [Read more…]
