here’s a sampling of elliott sharp, solo, from various locations and dates over around 5 years. the style is similar throughout, which isn’t that surprising (but it could be), and the recording levels seemed quite similar (which is surprising). so they all work together very well, if you’re in the mood for around 2 hours of elliott sharp solo performances. g’wan, give it a try. it’s all in 1 zip file, but with separate folders for each section below. i was torn between this lovely combination and elliott sharp & hélène breschand “chansons du crepuscule”, in saalfelden 2018 — very very different, and in the end, this was much more sunday-morning music. another day, perhaps.

seeder’s comments: one of the short but best jazz on 3 sessions, recorded in wonderful clarity, i seeded the first 2 tracks as part of another post while ago (re-seeded unchanged with the same file names) and the bbc broadcasted another track in one of their “missing bits” programs, so i hope you too will…
