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 of parties just now.  go wild!

it’s getting very hard to find anything to post here as there is simply so much coming through on dime at the moment.  i cannot keep up (not that anyone can, but…) and it’s even harder on a long weekend like this one, not spending hours a day enjoying the jazz while i work (all in all, i’ll take the weekend 🙂 ).  it’s the opposite of the old joke about the food.

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 by sarah tandy & which were also on her cd inflection in the sentence.

here’s something a little more contemplative (is that the word i’m looking for?), which was on the play list early this last week.  this sort of thing can be very difficult to listen to live:  your mind starts to wander and in the end you attention drifts away down little sidetracks.  this is not a bad thing, quite the contrary, but i don’t end up feeling that i’ve really heard the music.

i’m currently re-reading vanity fair by william makepeace thackeray, keeping just that little bit ahead of the tv dramatization, both of which i heartily recommend, though as so often in these cases, the book wins out: thackeray’s voice doesn’t really come through in the series.  this is made all the more fun by remembering very little except, at every moment, what the next half-chapter will bring.

another concert featuring the organ, from the great rhoda scott and la velle.  i’m not familiar with la velle, perhaps because she spent most of her life in france (thanks, internet!), but she’s well matched with rhoda scott, and it’s a super show — really sounds as if they were having a lot of fun, and i’m quite sure the audience were.

i’ve been listening to a lot of organ jazz lately (as i mentioned?) and dredging through the back catalogue of shows that haven’t been listened to in a while for more of the same.  this was something i recorded off the air over 13 years ago, from rté’s sadly discontinued show the third wave, back when there was still such a thing as a pcmcia cardbus.  an unwieldly little monster, but it recorded fm & broadcast tv very nicely, you just needed to be sure not to touch the computer during the recording or there’d be drop-outs.  anyway, it’s a good thing that the recording came out well, as it’s a fine (if somewhat short) show from “dr. music”.

doug riley b-3 quartet
maison de la culture frontenac
montréal, quebec, canada
19 oct 2006

doug riley – hammond b-3
chris mitchell – alto & tenor sax   [alt. link]
ted quinlan – guitar
ben riley – drums

01 “the third wave” intro (mostly about a contest) (1:47) [you probably want to delete this track]
02 intro to live feature (1:00)
03 hookup (mike stern) (9:59)
04 windows(chick corea) (8:42)
05 unknown (11:39)
06 nothing personal * (12:06)
07 “the third wave” outro [incomplete] (0:21)

* slight drop at around 3:01 where the song was split between files and i rejoined it with audacity.

rté one fm – “the third wave”, recorded 2007-08-04 from rte. described as “highlights from” the show, this is all that was broadcast on the day; i do not think it is the whole show.

recorded straight from fm to my laptop, with a little bit of hiss. rté normally only ever seems to broadcast “highlights”, but this is all of the concert that was broadcast on the day. i don’t know if more of the same show was broadcast on later shows (not that i heard, but i missed a lot of the 3rd wave shows).
