when i decided to upload this here, i realized that i’d also reseeded it on dime, almost exactly 3 years ago.  this was originally shared on dime by franka, almost exactly 8 years ago.  i guess april is “cécile verny month” around here…  it’s a topnotch fm recording, in mp2/320.

Monty Alexander 1998-08-22 CD Front Inserti’ve been listening to monty alexander all day, except when talking to people (a lot) or away (a bit).  been working very well for me today.  just… nice.  (probably shouldn’t use that word.  cheerful, maybe?  pleasant without being smooth jazz?  i don’t know.)  this one, the last, got the most smiles. despite which, ‘smile’ is not the sample.

Jimmy Witherspoon - Estival Jazz 1985_frontso who doesn’t like jimmy witherspoon?  here he is at the estival jazz 1985, one of a series of great seeds on dime (“a swissbird , simplexsimplicissimus & supermax release”).  but i’d never heard of rosay wortham (or, according to discogs.com, more often rozaa wortham).  she’s great, but probably jsut far enough into the ‘soul’ category to escape my rather divided attention.  and internet searches return very little beyond what’s on discogs.  hmmm.  anyway, this show’s a bit hard to classify, some jazz, some soul, some blues, all great.  good “friday late afternoon” music too.

like all the swissbird releases, this is a phenomenal soundboard, i’ve downloaded a number of them from dime (in this case, a reseed by ‘langtang’ in january 2015).  actually, over a couple of days, i downloaded this show along with shows by gal costa (2006); maceo parker & the roots revisited (1993); new york jazz giants (1992); slickaphonics (1988); and patti austin (2004).  someone somewhere was busy, or maybe just trying to keep their ratio above the plimsoll line.

obatik.com has a list of most of the swissbird releases, if you’re curious.  and his comments made me realize that there’ve not been any lately.  wonder what happened to swissbird, simplexsimplicissimus & supermax?

cd covers from the original seed.

CD Front Insertmaybe it’s time for a little kurt weill?  i’m very fond of weill, and meret becker did a whole show of kurt weill back in 2001, thoughtfully shared on dime by ‘uuughh’.  my not understanding german is too bad, i expect the talk (and there’s quite a bit) would be interesting.  i’ve included .pdf’s of a review of the show (not that very night) by the “berliner zeitung”, both in german and in a wacky-as-usual google-translate version.  and there’s a nice little write-up about meret becker on femmetotale.de also (i stole the image for the cd cover from there).

uuughh does note that “it’s worth listening, but it is more for real fans and completists.  a unique show, meret talks a lot about the songs.”

enjoy!

the sound is b-/c, too much bass, sometimes are noises on the mic. it’s worth listening, but it is more for real fans and completists.
a unique show, meret talks a lot about the songs.

CD Front Insert v2since i was down in the “z” section, i was listening to this (back-to-back with some old madeleine peyroux… good mix, actually). ‘grateful c2d’ seeded it on dime in august 2012, and this show has been languishing at the far end of the alphabet ever since.  but now, happily, re-encountered.  go to her shows, buy her albums.

[update:  i just got a couple of her cd’s, “until tomorrow” and “if you knew her”:  very nice.  and, which is a bit unusual, she writes a lot of  her songs.  as the liner notes to “until tomorrow” note, “jazz singers who produce original material are usually the exception rather than the rule“.  and should be supported in particular.]

one thing that bugs me: when i lived in belgium and could get klara radio, i could never figure out when the concerts were playing (there’s me with no dutch!).  opportunities missed, ah well.  i will probably say the same about korea (though k-pop concerts are maybe more likely than jazz…?).

oh… i changed the picture on the cd cover, as i’d already used the picture for another cover.  but both covers are in the .zip file, since i’d made the first one anyway.

Smoke Fairies 2011-02-03 The Scala, London cover imagea little break from jazz.  i downloaded this when ‘rayrad’ shared it on dime a few years ago.  tried to buy an album at the time, but their website wasn’t working for me, oh well.  but i was listening to another show of theirs lately and lo! their website was working, there was a new album out, etc etc.  happy days.  i bought one of each cd, thanks much.  only arrived today, still listening my way through them, and i strongly recommend you do the same.  but at the same time this show (which, in the day, i absolutely listened the bejaysus out of) remains a favorite.  now if smoke fairies would just come to korea…

this is probably my favorite diana krall show.  super show, great (fm) recording.  this show was part of a week-long john coltrane tribute at the village vanguard, which must have been quite something (i need to see if i can get copies of more shows from that week!).  instead of being “one that i’ve been listening to in my car”, this is “one that i need to put in my car”.  or maybe not… would that do it justice?

this show was originally recorded for the united nations refugee fund at the request of princess grace of monaco.  it was seeded on the lossless legs site a few years ago.  it’s a very good recording indeed, and makes you realize how sinatra become such a sensation.  this seems to have been issued by a number of bootleg labels over the years, and this appears to come from one of them.  the download was in .shn format; i’ve converted it to .flac using trader’s little helper (tlh) and you can download in either version.

here’s what sinatraguide.com has to say about the show:

this concert has been floating around in various formats for a long time, yet despite it’s historic importance and good recorded sound, official release has yet to see the light of day. recorded as part of a charity benefit for the united nations fund for refugee children, this was a starry evening, with an introduction (in french) given by noel coward….  and behind the podium was a young quincy jones, who has since described this concert as a highlight of his early career.  the concert itself is stunning – showing off sinatra in his prime, relaxed and at his ease as he bends notes and plays around with tempos with his inestimable grace and style.
