i recently went to a super show at arthur’s here in dublin, take me to the alley – a night of gregory porter, by bobby mc.  it was a long show — two good sets, and bobby mc and the crowd were in great form.  as he said himself, he wasn’t trying to do a gregory porter tribute, or do gregory porter like gregory porter — which was wise.  but his own style was also well suited to the material.  so, a fun evening & definitely someone to keep an eye out for around here.  anyway, it’d been a while since i’d listened to anything by gregory porter, and it’s time to dust off this excellent show by the man himself and share it here.

(the original seeder on dime must be using some sort of actual database…. no doubt a far cry from my pokey little spreadsheet, and definitely much more detailed)

happy new year!  i was spending a bit of time booking tickets for shows over the next few months, and listening to a concert by melanie de biasio.  and then one from a year later.  and it was still working very well for me, so what the heck?  one from the next year.  super.   so here you go:  shows from mid 2014, 2015 and 2016.  not such very long shows, these only add up to 2 hours, or less, if you skip the interviews 🙂


comments below are from whoever originally recorded & shared the show.  on dime, comments established that this was ‘part of ebu recording at studio 105, paris france 2014-02-06, broadcast on bbc radio 3 “jazz line up” 2015-01-31’.  not sure that is reflected in the info file…

claire martin presents part of a a concert set by belgian vocalist/flautist melanie de biasio and her band recorded in paris at studio 105, radio france. de biasio is a graduate of the conservatoire royal de bruxelles and with her group creates a stripped down sound, almost haunting at times, making dramatic use of space and dynamics.

dubbed by the press as ‘the belgian billie holiday’ 2014 was a breakthrough year for the artist.
she performed at jamie lavelle’s meltdown festival at london’s southbank centre, was the first belgian artist to appear on the jools holland tv show and was announced the winner for belgium at the 2015 european border breakers awards (ebba). one of her greatest champions is dj gilles peterson, who has recently compiled an album ‘no deal – remixed’ due for release in february 2015.

featured on today session are dre pallemaerts (drums), pascal paulus (clavinet, analogue synths), pascal mohy (piano) and melanie de biasio (vocals, flute). this session has been made available courtesy of the european broadcasting union.


i demuxed this from a video.  i listen to jazz while i work, so i end up listening to most videos, not watching them.  no tracking or setlist, sorry!

there are always a bunch of christmas jazz concerts floating around on dime, but this one by the incomparable clare teal is my favorite of the ones that i’ve downloaded.  it’s obvious:  she’s great, and just look at the tunes — a pantheon of christmas classics (her xmas cd is great too! and without the chatter!).  now, if we could just get her to pop over here to dublin… .. .

so, a quick break from basting a turkey… merry christmas, feliz navidad, and so on.

this is from one of my favorite venues, the nch right here in dublin.  there don’t seem to be as many of these broadcasts as there once were, which is really too bad, but the programming at the nch is still very good.  anyway, it was around time for some more singing around here, and this and the next one might fit the bill.

like the last show posted here (which also feature ranee lee), this was shared on dime by ‘plaz_restore’, and again the comments below are from the info file.  i love the comment “…and taurey butler (piano). this was only the third concert that butler played since joining the quintet two days prior.”  anyway, that’s about it for shows from that great northern land, at least for now.

ranee lee is a consumate performer. an accomplished singer who started out as a jazz drummer and saxophonist, now she’s also an author of children’s books and an educator. she appeared at the 2010 winnipeg international jazz festival with her quintet in her first visit in 15 years. this performance was on canada day and ranee reflected that on this same day 18 years ago in 1992, she became a canadian citizen. she’s well known to winnipeg audiences and they appreciated the passion she brought to the stage. ranee recently won a juno in the category of vocal jazz album of the year for her live cd “lives upstairs”.

this performance is a mix of old and new, and includes a swing version of “she’s come undun” by winnipeg’s guess who.  ranee is accompanied by her husband richard ring on guitar and 3 very capable montreal players: david laing (drums), morgan moore (bass) and taurey butler (piano). this was only the third concert that butler played since joining the quintet two days prior.

oliver jones is one of canada’s finest pianist, and a top-notch composer/arranger. his career intertwines with the history of jazz in montréal where he was born and raised. if you are a jazz piano enthusiast and you haven’t heard of oliver jones, it may be because he grew up in the shadow of another montréal pianist by the name of oscar peterson. peterson was jones’ idol, inspiration, mentor, friend, and compatriot. in his own right, jones received the highest artistic honour available in canada, the governor general’s performing arts award for lifetime artistic achievement.

the scope of jones repertoire is uncanny. he normally reserves about 20% of his stage time to fulfilling requests, and few have stumped him. in this piano trio concert, the usual request time is filled with some very welcome guest appearances from some of montreal’s other jazz stars.

here’s a treat: hilary kole live at the iridium, singing a lot of ‘standards’, though not all standards that i’ve heard much (as she comments about one song, actually).  the only glitch is that the recording cuts out 30 minutes into the second set!  this was a live webstream (so a rare video here on cipjazz), with a bonus (ding! ding! ding!) of demuxed & tracked audio (.m4a a.k.a. aac-lc).  yeah, basically i just wanted to listen to this in my car.
