this was just up on dime in a 5.5 gb video, and really knocked my socks off.  so, having demuxed it & tracked it for the stereo in the living room and the car (which, like most cars, doesn’t really deserve the “stereo” moniker, and frankly it’s pushing it for the living room), i thought to share it here in case you’d not had the time or disk space for a belly buster of a video.  yes, call me old fashioned, i still think of 5.5 gb as a “belly buster”.  but well worth it, if you actually watch the videos.  i seldom do.  the audio track was ac-3, 384 kbs/48 khz, which i’ve converted to flac.

a very nice audience recording of some straight ahead jazz, a really nice show that i started my day with.   and nice to have a few photos of the show.  my photos of shows that i go to never come out very well, but then i’m using my phone & i don’t move around, so they’re all from basically the same perspective.  and like so many people, nobody in my family has a working camera, we all just use our phones.  oh well, just enjoy the music!

this show was not long after, and with the same line up as, hendrika entzian’s album pivot, released in may of that year.  she released another album (her third) marble in april last year, which i also quite liked, and which is a little more upbeat than this more sombre offering.  not sure why i’ve bought marble and not pivot, maybe because it was newer (a change from the “get the oldest first” approach?).  perhaps i should go shopping…

it’s been a good week for music around here.  this is the first of several shows that i really enjoyed (listening to another now).  i associate the harmonica with the blues so strongly that i still get a little surprise, but i think this show might finally disabuse me of that notion.  it’s a nice mix of original compositions by ms. deurloo, other band members and other people.  enjoy!

what to say about the modern jazz quartet?  what indeed.  this is an excellent recording from that unknown but familiar venue, studio 105 in paris.  it really hit the spot last night, with a glass of spanish red vermouth and a bit of light humorous fiction before dinner.

it’s funny how things that sound like they’ll be so similar can be so different.  in this case, it’s this show and the one the next day.  only a day apart, same line up, many of the same pieces were played.  yet i really enjoyed this, listened to it twice, and did not much care for the other recording.  i say it’s funny because it seems more often to be the other way around, with consecutive shows being very similar, and my different take on these two shows on the 23rd and 24th was unexpected.  anyway, this is the one that i liked… no surprise there!

this is a demux of the 4.1gb video which was just uploaded on dime.  the sound quality is excellent, fortunately, since hannibal peterson was in fine form that night.  put this on at your new year’s eve party (next year, that is) and crank it up.  i don’t see a lot of hannibal peterson around, and don’t actually have any of his cds (something to do this year, unlike your aforementioned party).  not sure if this will be the last post of the year, so in case it is:  a happy new year to all.

well, i’m theoretically off now until after new year’s, so here’s a perennial favorite, cedar walton.  he’s in quintet including sax & trombone, a very nice combination indeed to set us up for the holiday season.  i continue to amass christmas jazz shows (of which this is not one, never fear) but sadly the family have put the kibosh on those, preferring more traditional renditions.  anyway, the info file showed 55 minutes, but i’m seeing over 90 minutes in foobar2000.  might pull out a book and glass of wine now, and enjoy the rest of the show.

1920s/30s jazz played by a great orchestra, superb arrangements, combined with max raabe’s
deadpan humor, made for a thoroughly enjoyable evening. you may have seen some of max’s
hilarious covers of tom jones’s ‘sex bomb’ or britney spears’s ‘oops i did it again’. i
did the best i could with the song titles, though i couldn’t figure out track 13 of set 1.
concert program and a few cell photos are included. note the final encore which was played with
the brass section backstage in the distance, for a beautiful effect.
