here’s a quick upload of a short show by one of my favorite drummers.  it’s demuxed audio from an ancient recording from french tv.  the audio specs are, in my view, a bit dubious, but the sound is quite good (as is the lineup).  so who knows?

speaking of lineup, the announcer at the beginning refers to “three young musicians” supporting jones…  steve grossman was 22, dave liebman was 27 and gene perla was 33.  a posting at houseofdrumming.com says that this was “the live at the lighthouse group”.

performance date (from comment on blog)
29 may 1973 is the first broadcast date. actually this show was recorded late october 1972
in paris. on 20 october they played at warsaw jazz jamboree and two pieces (yesterdays and
children’s merry-go-round) were issued on polskie nagrania muza sxl 0929 (various artists –
jazz jamboree ’72). dave liebman left elvin quartet to join miles davis band in january 1973.

this was up on dime a few days after the show at the dwarf jar cafe, down on the quays here in dublin. it’s a pretty good recording (despite everything mentioned), which probably says more about the band than anything.  it’s a crazy venue, the way they’ve taken advantage of the high ceiling.  i’ve been trying to see if any of these lads are playing around town… and haven’t been able to make it to the dwarf jar for ages (mondays not being great for me lately).

it’s always a good time for something lighthearted & fun.  we have several of pink martini’s cds, but this is the only concert recording that i have of them, recorded & shared on dime by ‘zzzaccount’.

it’s only recorded on an iphone 5, but the sound is surprisingly good, and it sounds as if there was a lot of energy that night!

lets get this uploaded and go have a glass of wine!

it was a real delight… a passionate performance with an outstanding sound. perfect to complement the beauty of mexico city at this time of the year with the thousands of jacarandas in bloom that adorn the city embellishing the dull & suffocating concrete with tiny violet flowers.
… of course it would have been nice to have an edirol or a zoom to record it… but the iphone was the only device handy… & i don’t have an edirol nor a zoom either.

i put this on sort of at random while rearranging the office/guestroom, and liked it so much that i’m uploading it now that the room is a bit better sorted out.  ok, it’s not actually a guestroom until the sofabed arrives, but soon…

it was a nice surprise to see that this was another show shared on dime by our unknown friends at planetfuncamp.  seems to always be “lisa e.” attending.  so, thanks to lisa e!  the comments below are hers, i think, and she’s quite right about yosvaney terry.

actually, i’ve come to realize that i’m a bit tired of piano jazz as such.  something like this, that mixes it up more, suits me better at the moment.

comments:
this was a very special night. this was the first time i saw yosvaney terry- the sax player.
i now get out to see him every chance i can. thank you manuel for that. he is so true to
his feeling and background when playing and composing. it was also special because
manuel had the father of something important up there to entertain us on the last tune of
the first set. what a great legacy moment that was. also, yosvaney was playing
that night with his brother literally behind him on bass. plus this night my sister was in
attendance as well as lisa e. and- of course- the music was the real star of that night!
enjoy… please,
and, as always,

peace and much groove from planetfuncamp

i was just trolling through the hard drive looking for something that didn’t look familiar (it’s been a good day), and saw a big bunch of sam rivers shows.  remember:  i’m not mr. memory.  so it was “sam who? and why do i have so many?”  curiously, i definitely disliked the first two that i sampled.  but number three…

just heading home after a visit to raleigh, nc, usa, home of one of my favourite online stations, wncu fm.

they were having – sorry, are still having – their fundraising week.  it’s one of two jazz stations on the internet radio in the kitchen at home (yes, wpfw fm in d.c. is the other, of course.)  bandwidth costs money, so…

and so… what’re your favourite internet jazz stations?

and if they live on listener donations, think about giving them some spondulix (but don’t tell us if you donate… that’s your business).

 

here i am, in atlanta on the way home. cheers.

last month, the nice folks at ‘planetfuncamp’ (aka dime user ‘dagon333’) uploaded a 2014 buster williams show at the sidedoor jazz club in old lyme, ct.  i enjoyed it immensely (like all the planetfuncamp uploads by dagon333), in particular the saxophone, though the bass solo was definitely the highlight.

i found that i had one other show featuring the saxophonist, bruce williams (no relation to buster, a.f.a.i.k.), from a paris show by the buster williams quartet that ‘elgaucho’ uploaded about a week after that show.

listed them that way.
