time for something a little lighthearted jazz theatre.  dr. pinch himself is a bit over the top, layering on his character a bit thick, but what can you expect from “a minor character from the comedy of errors“?  and the pinchtones are marvelous.  they’d be a fun band to have at a garden party, if you lived in los angeles and had lots of money.  or at a wedding, except the doctor would no doubt try to steal the show…

i was looking for nice covers of la vie en rose today, and ran across a number of nice shows, including this one that nolataper shared a some point.  this is a lot of fun (i must get back to new orleans some day…), and nicely edited (thanks, nolataper, for editing out station ids, and so well!) ms. ketchens seems to be described just as a clarinetist, which is true, but it turns out she’s also a fine singer!  a nice surprise, not having heard this show since i first downloaded it (as is so often the case).  in fairness, this is not my favorite version of the song from the shows i’ve been listening to, but the concert really hit it for me.  there you are, eh?  perhaps we’ll get a few more versions of la vie en rose before this weekend is out…

norma winstone uses her voice like an instrument in this concert, very pure singing that just seems to float on and on.  everytime i listen to her, i ask myself why i don’t listen to her more.  music like this always seems very contemplative to me, and the danger listening to it is that your mind will wander & you’ll end up missing it, floating away, which is not such a bad thing, and if you drift off… well, that’s the finest sleep available.

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.
