another concert featuring the organ, from the great rhoda scott and la velle.  i’m not familiar with la velle, perhaps because she spent most of her life in france (thanks, internet!), but she’s well matched with rhoda scott, and it’s a super show — really sounds as if they were having a lot of fun, and i’m quite sure the audience were.

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.

one of legendary drummer buddy rich’s last requests of his daughter,cathy, was to keep his band working, his music alive, and to do something for young people. no easy task, but eventually the idea of an annual memorial concert seemed like the best way to do it. cathy rich produced the first buddy rich memorial concert in 1988 at carnegie hall in new york and thus began the story of these incredible events. 2017 marks the 30th anniversary of buddy’s passing and what would have been his 100th birthday and, following the success of the 25th anniversary memorial concert at the london palladium in 2012, ronnie scott’s will be hosting 12 exclusive shows over 6 nights featuring the reformed buddy rich big band with one of the all-time great drummers dave weckl, buddy rich big band drummer gregg potter, and the evening hosted by buddy’s daughter cathy rich. the buddy rich big band comprises musicians from both the us and the uk, several of whom toured with buddy himself and played on his last ever uk shows in 1986. join us in paying tribute to “the world’s greatest drummer” in his 100th birthday year!

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.
