you have to to hand it to jalc…  the produtions there are fantastic.  this new year’s eve performance by two of my current favorite pianists is like a turbo-charged piano trio, plus the great jimmy heath (recently deceased, r.i.p.) and nicholas payton thrown in just because new year’s eve at dizzy’s.  with two pianos, i’m always reminded of the salieri line from amadeus that there are simply too many notes (and the first track definitely felt that way). but then, as i always say, too much is not enough, and nothing exceeds like excess.  oh, and speaking of new year… happy lunar new year!  health, luck, and prosperity to all.

the two grand pianos are nestled together opposite each other, cyrus chesnut on the left, benny green on your right

james newton and geri allen is a killer combination, and this is an excellent show.  not overly long, but having longish pieces more than makes up for it (for me, anyway – i think i’ve said that before).  it’s funny, when i think of the flute, i don’t really think of jazz.  not sure why, maybe because other wind instruments are so associated with jazz?

i recently went to a super show at arthur’s here in dublin, take me to the alley – a night of gregory porter, by bobby mc.  it was a long show — two good sets, and bobby mc and the crowd were in great form.  as he said himself, he wasn’t trying to do a gregory porter tribute, or do gregory porter like gregory porter — which was wise.  but his own style was also well suited to the material.  so, a fun evening & definitely someone to keep an eye out for around here.  anyway, it’d been a while since i’d listened to anything by gregory porter, and it’s time to dust off this excellent show by the man himself and share it here.

(the original seeder on dime must be using some sort of actual database…. no doubt a far cry from my pokey little spreadsheet, and definitely much more detailed)

eddie harris isn’t a name that i hear very often, which is too bad, as it sounds as if he put on a great show.  this one also has constant bit of crowd noise that gives it the feel of a club; that can be good or bad, here i think it worked (though it needs turning up, or is it my ears?).  i knew i’d not listened to this in years as it was still in shn format (don’t see that much!)  which i’ve converted to flac.

to flac in jan 2020. as part of that, i slightly renamed the files from cd 1 to be consistent with the others
(though, would anyone break the show up into audio cds now?), created new checksum files and added this new info

happy new year!  i was spending a bit of time booking tickets for shows over the next few months, and listening to a concert by melanie de biasio.  and then one from a year later.  and it was still working very well for me, so what the heck?  one from the next year.  super.   so here you go:  shows from mid 2014, 2015 and 2016.  not such very long shows, these only add up to 2 hours, or less, if you skip the interviews 🙂


comments below are from whoever originally recorded & shared the show.  on dime, comments established that this was ‘part of ebu recording at studio 105, paris france 2014-02-06, broadcast on bbc radio 3 “jazz line up” 2015-01-31’.  not sure that is reflected in the info file…

claire martin presents part of a a concert set by belgian vocalist/flautist melanie de biasio and her band recorded in paris at studio 105, radio france. de biasio is a graduate of the conservatoire royal de bruxelles and with her group creates a stripped down sound, almost haunting at times, making dramatic use of space and dynamics.

dubbed by the press as ‘the belgian billie holiday’ 2014 was a breakthrough year for the artist.
she performed at jamie lavelle’s meltdown festival at london’s southbank centre, was the first belgian artist to appear on the jools holland tv show and was announced the winner for belgium at the 2015 european border breakers awards (ebba). one of her greatest champions is dj gilles peterson, who has recently compiled an album ‘no deal – remixed’ due for release in february 2015.

featured on today session are dre pallemaerts (drums), pascal paulus (clavinet, analogue synths), pascal mohy (piano) and melanie de biasio (vocals, flute). this session has been made available courtesy of the european broadcasting union.


i demuxed this from a video.  i listen to jazz while i work, so i end up listening to most videos, not watching them.  no tracking or setlist, sorry!

there are always a bunch of christmas jazz concerts floating around on dime, but this one by the incomparable clare teal is my favorite of the ones that i’ve downloaded.  it’s obvious:  she’s great, and just look at the tunes — a pantheon of christmas classics (her xmas cd is great too! and without the chatter!).  now, if we could just get her to pop over here to dublin… .. .

so, a quick break from basting a turkey… merry christmas, feliz navidad, and so on.

this is a fun show!  and bound to pick you up if you’re feeling a bit blue.  this reminded me of the great spike jones & the city slickers, but  in a small way — after all, a piano trio ain’t an orchestra.  on the other hand, i might put on a recording by hildegard pohl over dinner, but i never would do that with spike jones.  so, and i do mean it… enjoy!

kellerbuehne, e-werk

* kind of “contest” where only the female members of the audience could write down their “wish-song”
to be played in the second set. during track #17 the votes were picked from a basket by the female
members again and 8 of those were played in the following song as a medley.

** from the upcoming program of next year, a composition from johann sebastian bach.

recorded at first seated row a bit right of center. excellent recording with one minor disturbance: due to the accidental low volume setting, this has a bit of hiss on the interludes.
a few nice pics are included as well. all thanks straight to nuernberg to the fuzzman for taping.

i was listening to something else which was very good, but i got tired of it.  looking for something to cheer myself up, i noticed this show, or rather i noticed “albany, ny” and thought to myself ah, that must be one of those fantastic shows from upstate new york that csatennis has shared!  be just the thing!  and indeed it was.  csatennis had shared this in two parts, which i’ve combined into one folder (with combined info, ffp and md5 files also).  from his comments (not to mention the line ups on other recordings he’s shared), there must have been a whole busload of italian-american hard boppers in the general new york area.

comments from csatennis:
if you are a mcpherson fan, this is indispensible. i have a lot of his commercially produced cds, and this
easily ranks with the best of them and better than most. the sound quality is exceptionally good.

if you think the piano player’s name is a pseudonym, it isn’t. this guy is for real, and you’ve probably
never heard of him. stagnitta could really play in those days. a resident of syracuse and graduate of
craine school of music, he was a brilliant player and student of both jazz and classical music. he obviously
had chops to spare. unfortunately, he had some emotional issues in his life and a year or so later he disappeared
from the albany area and moved to new york. he played a lot with his friend, tenor player sal nistico. according to others who have posted on dime to volume 1 of this recording, he has returned to his hometown of syracuse.

bocchicio was a well liked bass player from the nyc area and ron davis played regularly with arnie lawrence, bill watrous
and other well known nyc boppers.

the rhythm section simply kicks butt.

as for mcpherson, he is simply on fire. i think that he realized that he was playing with a group of talented
strangers and he had every intention of keeping them in line and showing them who was boss. watching this group, it was
obvious the sidemen loved the ride. so will you.

accordion & piano or violin are both such lovely combinations.  this show is mostly compositions by either peirani or wollny, leavened with a bit of other stuff, including an old favorite oh shenandoah, which a close friend of mine sang a cappella for us recently, at a huge thanksgiving dinner he was hosting (a whole story in itself, that).  i think he keeps it in his (amateur) repertoire just for us.  anyway, the accordion always reminds me of my father, who played accordion a bit.  the family story goes that my grandparents tried to give his older brother (my late uncle) music lessons, but with no success, and they decided there was no point in giving music lessons to children.  my grandfather being tone-deaf might have played a small role, if you ask me.  so my father bought an accordion and learned how to play on his own.
