i think that i don’t like the organ, and then i pull a show like this out of long-term storage while loading up the usb drive for a trip.  this great show was shared by ‘frekem’ in sept 2010.

audio quality: a- (fm)

the closing concert of the international jazz festival amsterdam (de meervaart), sunday september 29th, 1985. dutch radio broadcasts: the whole concert (over one and a half hour) was recorded and later aired in separate broadcasts.

my [i.e., frekem’s] own tapings of the broadcasts. i kept the very first opening and last closing announcements of the late michiel de ruyter, who is also audible on stage in the end. short pauses (tape flips) occur in tracks 3 (at 4:30), 7 (at 0:08), and 10 (at 8:21). although some of the “unknown” tracks (or parts) (1, 5, 9, 10, and 11) sound familiar to me, i can’t grasp the tune titles right now. therefore, any additional info on this will be appreciated.

enjoy!

music really does pass down through families, as this show by rené mclean, son of jackie mclean.  musical families, theatre families, etc etc.  mclean really seems to stretch his legs a bit on this, just taking a run at what he wanted to play.  it’s really nice, and must have been mesmerizing in person.  that can be a bit dangerous sometimes – your mind starts to drift, your eyes close…  – but there’s no falling asleep with this.

this was shared around a year ago on dime, and i’ve redone the info file based on comments on the dime tracker.

i’m on a little mini-break, this august bank holiday weekend, and am feeling great between the break, seeing old friends, the amazing weather, etc etc etc.  the trusty usb drive, however, is gathering dust at home as i forgot it.  fortunately, a rather embarrassing number of usb “thumb” drives in the car manage between them to have something to play, including this extremely good show from 1966.  i downloaded it 5 years ago this thursday, when jazamo reseeded it on dime.  comments below are jazamo’s to which i have nothing to add.

jazamo show notes 8/9/2013:
i was listening to this the other day, just a fantastic set! classic stan in the bossa nova era, add to that the sweet vocals of astrud gilberto, early gary burton, & legendary drumer roy haynes, wow! great sound and performance, this re-broadcast show is re-seeded it’s original mp2 format, nothing touched, and micro-sized to fit any dime ratio (even the spank-ees). all praise goes out to the original seeder hamhen for his perfect capture, and as always your comments are welcome!

did i mention it sounds great? i have seen only one other show from the bossa era for stan (other than his commercial releases), and that one (jazz door carnegie hall 1964) didn’t include astrud gilberto. she has had very few show pass thru here, all have had weak sound quality. this show was recorded at the end of the bossa era, as stan would go on to a new quartet with chick corea a year later. thanks again to hamhen for his fine capture.

well, it’s been far too long without posting something with the word “groove”.  cooked up a nice dinner and afterwards was listening to this.  from downstairs, the family shouted “stop tapping your foot!”  ’nuff said, here it is.  over dinner, we were listening to corcoran holt (who i saw recently playing with kenny garrett in madrid), which my daughter put on thinking it might be classical.  won’t be fooled by a double-bass on an album cover again, i expect.

incidentally, the date of this is a bit vague.  the folder name is for 24-dec-1993, the info file has it as the 23rd, and the tracks themselves are labelled with “set 1” as on 24-dec and “set 2” as on 14-dec.

sbd > ? > cdr > eac > flac
(wavelab to remove glitches; see below)

a great recording and a killer setlist. a few minor sound issues: about 1:29 into saturday afternoon there was some electronic mayhem, perhaps a cable being wiggled. it’s been cleaned up substantially. rahsaansong has about 2 minutes of very light static, perhaps from an earlier eac, which i spent a few hours cleaning up. the really offensive stuff is gone, but once you get started there’s always another tiny tic to remove, and if you listen closely you may still hear it. but, overall, not a big deal.

enjoy!

as for so many musicians i like these days, dime was my introduction to ambrose akinmusire.  the line up is what his website calls his “extraordinary working quintet”.  websites are so prone to hyperbole, but this is a fantastic group, and trumpet, sax & piano is wonderful & versatile combination.  these fm recordings from sunside are generally excellent, and this is no exception, including minimal dj voice-over (often a problem with french radio).

looking forward to hearing more from ambrose akinmusire et al.

here’s a nice show by a piano trio from poland, that i was listening to the other day.  i’ve been kind of “off” piano trios for a while.  but… having liked it enough to copy it to my (still trusty) usb drive for the trip, i thought why not upload it while i have a few minutes?  this was u/l’ed by ‘ealfons’ in may 2012.

well, this finishes (?) an unintentional run of shows from duc des lombards in paris.  this show by makaya mccraven is a little different than the last two postings here, more improvisational.  and having marquis hill on trumpet is a real plus.  see also this posting of a marquis hill show with makaya mccraven on drums, a nice counterpoint to this show.

the new york times had a good review of a makaya mccraven show (from a few months earlier, with a slightly different lineup) that touches on some of his techniques, and this show has a few comments on the same (just before a great cover of miles davis’ shivad from “live evil”).

‘elgaucho’ shared this on dime a couple of days after the show was broadcast.

in madrid for a few days, i was lucky enough to catch the kenny garrett quintet at clamores jazz.  i’ve not been to clamores before — actually, i associate it more with clubbing (which they still do there, starting late & ending early, natch!) — but i quite liked the place.  i was a bit taken aback at 9pm to find myself just about the last person in the door for what turned out to be a 10pm show; i’ll be there earlier next time, and dinner be damned.  anyway, it was a great show though all i had to record with was an android phone (no it’s not really listenable, thanks for asking).  sometimes, k.g. reminded me of a younger pharoah sanders; googling today, i see that’s not just me (1) (2).  pharoah sanders was one of my favorite musicians at one point (and i’ll always have a soft spot for his music), so that added a bit of a kick to the show.  (i’ve only seen p.s. once, at the cork jazzfest a bit over a decade ago.)  the music in the last half hour didn’t really do it for me, though i must say kenny garrett knows how to get people up out of their seats — the energy when he switched from jazz to (i’m not sure what) kept me there.  and a long show, too:  i left after 2 hours, and they were still at it.

bottom line:  liked clamores, loved kenny garrett.  i’ll be back, and hope k.g. will as well.
