here’s another freddie hubbard show, from almost exactly 10 years later.  why have one when two will do as well or (as here) even better?  saturday turned into a bit of a hubbard-fest around here, not stopping with two shows, but that’s all for tonight.

this was (re)seeded by ubu on dime back in 2008.

finally got our car up & running, those little things like insurance, license plates, etc can be a challenge in the right (or wrong) circumstances.  so, driving to work on friday in the car for the first time, i had a handful of usb thumb drives, but out of all that, this show was the only thing that would play on the car stereo…

i downloaded this in august 2014, when ‘jazamo’ seeded it on dime, commenting that “here’s a nice set from freddie hubbard recorded in 1977. freddie moves away from his standard lineup replacing the tenor sax with electric guitar on this tour. re-seeded here in it’s original fm broadcast mp2 codec, the sound is excellent. many thanks to the original seeder!”   thanks, jazamo!

i’m not sure what made me think of vijay iyer the other day, but i ended up listening to 3 of his shows from 2016 over the course of the day today.  this one features tyshawn sorey on drums, and it took some looking to find him on the internet (“titian”, “tysion”, the list goes on… there was no lineup in the original info file).  each of the 3 shows had a different drummer, first the june 2016 frankfurt show had marcus gilmore on drums, then this show with tyshawn sorey & finally justin brown at the oct 2016 bimhuis show. or
Note: at august 2016, appears to no longer be connected to the drummer tyshawn sorey.

well, i was on a bit of a heath bros kick today.  which, by the way, is quite the way to get a day’s work in.  like those old lucky ads said:  picks you up when you’re down, calms you down when you’re tense.  etc etc.

started with jimmy heath and the heath brothers at mr c’s, 1978; followed by jimmy Heath at the ramada inn, august 17, 1975 (vol 1.. where’s vol 2 please?); finishing up with this fantastic show from japan in 1975, with both nat adderley (applause) and cedar walton (more applause), not to mention tootie heath!  actually, that last show was on twice, as i’d earlier trimmed 2-second gaps but had kept — and inadvertently played — the original files as well.  halfway through the second go-around… well, here ya go.  enjoy.  btw, times below may be off by 2 seconds or so. 🙂

downloaded from dime march 2008 (seeded by bluenote2005). there were 2-second gaps at the end of every track, which i have removed using wavtrim 2.24.   consequently, i have redone this info file and created new .md5 and .ffp files. — pete (dublin)

here’s a nice show from the national concert hall in dublin that i recorded off the air & seeded on dime in 2007.  it’s a great show, and very well recorded but wasn’t so good for folks who actually attended.

the rté announcer comments on the “truly tragic quality of the sound”.  and when i seeded this on dime, retnull described it as “the worst live sound i’ve ever heard”.   but, fortunately, as the the rté announcer added, “rté’s soundman was a bit wiser, and the recorded sound is very good indeed.”

the jazz alley show on rté has been dropped in my absence, which is really too bad.

finally, a shout out to the fine folks at waltons music and the waltons new school of music (where my daughter studied piano until we moved away).  this was one of the waltons world masters series, and their support for that series (and this show) is appreciated.

cezar asked for a bit of the fritz pauer trio feat. betty carter, after i mentioned it on this post.  i had planned something else to celebrate being home in dublin (coming up next!), but thought what the heck?  also, i listened to it.  yes, only 11 mins with the fritz pauer group, but the little bits & bobs from 3 separate shows worked very well together (not to mention a bit of cyrus chestnut!).  definitely worth sharing, so here you go, cezar.

tip of the hat to hamhen, who seeded this on dime in nov. 2011.

fritz pauer trio feat. betty carter-
betty carter (voc), fritz pauer (p), günther lenz (b), aldo romano (dr).
mainz (germany), 1968 (venue and exact date unknown).

3 everytime we say goodbye

betty carter quartet-
betty carter (voc), khalid moss (p), curtis lundy (b), lewis nash (dr).

all packed up, just waiting to fly out on monday.  meanwhile, i downloaded the 3rd of three consecutive nights of the horace silver quintet, from 1976.  two nights at the umbria jazzfest, after which the quintet decamped for juan-les-pins.

in a bit of serendipity that i’d not noticed before, a song missing from the 20th  is included with the show from the 21st.

one other thing: the info files aren’t always right, but in comments on dime, the seeders confirmed that the dates are all in 1976.  not 1977 or 1986.

so enjoy a mini “horace silver fest” as i wing my way westward.

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?
