this is a bit of a large download, at 1.3 gb, and will take a while, but it’s at 24 bits – 48 khz.  i was going to downsample it, but (obviously) decided not to.  this is a lovely show, but given the equipment that i use, there’s not really a payback in sound quality for the additional file size at 24/48.  and it is good, like the other shows from sunside that i’ve downloaded.  if i make it to paris instead of madrid, sunside is on my to-do list.  for now, it’s a stroll over to clamores jazz or bogui jazz whenever i’m down from dublin (as just this moment); a change of pace from my usual haunts.

here’s one from dublin!  this was recorded over 5 days, two songs at a time, by ‘johnos’, which took some real dedication.  unfortunately, there’s no more live jazz on irish radio since the blue of the night.  maybe the odd piece, coincidentally.  and there’s often a live song or two on arena (though seldom jazz) — that’s a fantastic arts program and fortunately falls right when we happen to be listening to the radio.  swings & roundabouts, i guess.

broadcast it varys a bit i have removed the dj intros over the week as it becomes repitive.
on friday i was away from home and reciption was a bit scratchy still enjoyable.i have included
two mp3 samples one with the hiss at the end.

this was seeded recently enough on dime by ‘davidraphael’, in video format, which i’ve demuxed. the sound quality is very good. it was seeded as “requiem for john coltrane” (a.k.a. “nighttime daytime requiem”) but on www.komeda.art.pl it’s just “nighttime daytime requiem”.  either way, allaboutjazz.com says that it “was written as a response to the news of the death of saxophonist john coltrane”.  it’s a great tribute to coltrane, and i would be interested to know what was said about him in the short interview in the middle of the performance.

i’m still only listening to the first half of this, haven’t gotten to the second half with ernest dawkins, but (despite having no memory of this show, much less the 2nd half) am uploading it anyway.  it was shared (and maybe recorded?) by ‘jazzrita’ in early sept 2009, which is a pretty good lineage.

here’s a very cheery show from almost a decade ago.  this performance was just after the release of “haven’t we met”, presumably part of the tour to promote that album.  this was shared on dime in mid-2011 by ‘plaz_restore’.

there is one little glitch, a 9-second clip from a comedy skit in the middle of track 8, that sounds to me as if it’s from the original broadcast.  i think you’ll enjoy this anyway!

in 2008, emilie-claire barlow took home the award for “female vocalist of the year” at the (canadian) national jazz awards, and this year [i.e. 2011?] she was again nominated in that category. emilie-claire’s performances have been featured in movies and in television series. as a busy studio singer and voice actor, she has been heard on numerous commercials and you can hear emilie-claire in several animated television series. she has released several successful cds and in march 2009 she released her latest studio album, “haven’t we met”.

cbc radio two’s ‘canada live’ was at the rbc theatre in mississauga’s living arts theatre to capture emilie-claire’s performance along with reg schwager on guitar, mike murley on saxophone and ross macintyre on bass.

the closing concert of the international jazz festival amsterdam (de meervaart), sunday september 29th, 1985. dutch radio broadcasts: the whole concert (over one and a half hour) was recorded and later aired in separate broadcasts.

my [i.e., frekem’s] own tapings of the broadcasts. i kept the very first opening and last closing announcements of the late michiel de ruyter, who is also audible on stage in the end. short pauses (tape flips) occur in tracks 3 (at 4:30), 7 (at 0:08), and 10 (at 8:21). although some of the “unknown” tracks (or parts) (1, 5, 9, 10, and 11) sound familiar to me, i can’t grasp the tune titles right now. therefore, any additional info on this will be appreciated.

enjoy!

music really does pass down through families, as this show by rené mclean, son of jackie mclean.  musical families, theatre families, etc etc.  mclean really seems to stretch his legs a bit on this, just taking a run at what he wanted to play.  it’s really nice, and must have been mesmerizing in person.  that can be a bit dangerous sometimes – your mind starts to drift, your eyes close…  – but there’s no falling asleep with this.

this was shared around a year ago on dime, and i’ve redone the info file based on comments on the dime tracker.

i’m on a little mini-break, this august bank holiday weekend, and am feeling great between the break, seeing old friends, the amazing weather, etc etc etc.  the trusty usb drive, however, is gathering dust at home as i forgot it.  fortunately, a rather embarrassing number of usb “thumb” drives in the car manage between them to have something to play, including this extremely good show from 1966.  i downloaded it 5 years ago this thursday, when jazamo reseeded it on dime.  comments below are jazamo’s to which i have nothing to add.

jazamo show notes 8/9/2013:
i was listening to this the other day, just a fantastic set! classic stan in the bossa nova era, add to that the sweet vocals of astrud gilberto, early gary burton, & legendary drumer roy haynes, wow! great sound and performance, this re-broadcast show is re-seeded it’s original mp2 format, nothing touched, and micro-sized to fit any dime ratio (even the spank-ees). all praise goes out to the original seeder hamhen for his perfect capture, and as always your comments are welcome!

did i mention it sounds great? i have seen only one other show from the bossa era for stan (other than his commercial releases), and that one (jazz door carnegie hall 1964) didn’t include astrud gilberto. she has had very few show pass thru here, all have had weak sound quality. this show was recorded at the end of the bossa era, as stan would go on to a new quartet with chick corea a year later. thanks again to hamhen for his fine capture.

well, it’s been far too long without posting something with the word “groove”.  cooked up a nice dinner and afterwards was listening to this.  from downstairs, the family shouted “stop tapping your foot!”  ’nuff said, here it is.  over dinner, we were listening to corcoran holt (who i saw recently playing with kenny garrett in madrid), which my daughter put on thinking it might be classical.  won’t be fooled by a double-bass on an album cover again, i expect.

incidentally, the date of this is a bit vague.  the folder name is for 24-dec-1993, the info file has it as the 23rd, and the tracks themselves are labelled with “set 1” as on 24-dec and “set 2” as on 14-dec.

(wavelab to remove glitches; see below)

a great recording and a killer setlist. a few minor sound issues: about 1:29 into saturday afternoon there was some electronic mayhem, perhaps a cable being wiggled. it’s been cleaned up substantially. rahsaansong has about 2 minutes of very light static, perhaps from an earlier eac, which i spent a few hours cleaning up. the really offensive stuff is gone, but once you get started there’s always another tiny tic to remove, and if you listen closely you may still hear it. but, overall, not a big deal.

enjoy!

as for so many musicians i like these days, dime was my introduction to ambrose akinmusire.  the line up is what his website calls his “extraordinary working quintet”.  websites are so prone to hyperbole, but this is a fantastic group, and trumpet, sax & piano is wonderful & versatile combination.  these fm recordings from sunside are generally excellent, and this is no exception, including minimal dj voice-over (often a problem with french radio).

looking forward to hearing more from ambrose akinmusire et al.
