i’ve taken the files for a number of postings offline (the postings are still on the site, but not the zip files). the download link should not be working for these (just text “download: invalid download id.”).  i’ve also tagged the posting as “archived”.

if you’d like a copy of one of these, leave me a comment, and i’ll see if i can put it back up for you temporarily.

i’ll be doing this sort of cleanup regularly.  i think the large number of files is affecting the service — download are starting to truncate routinely.

perhaps coincidentally, a few webcrawlers have been doing heavy downloads lately; i’ve blocked all the webcrawlers i can.

so, between removing a number of shows and blocking the webcrawlers, i hope these problems will go away.

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.”

setlist (all tracks are from kurt weill, help appreciated):

04 und wie man sich bettet

08 band introduction
10 denn für dieses leben ist der mensch nicht …
15 salomon song

source: md with mono mic
unknown lineage. i got this as wav-file.
wav > audition (tracking) > flac frontend lvl 8 > flac
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.

a. and i had a great time on saturday night with our friend ksw & lyn, a friend of his, to see KoN & friends and ryu bok-seong’s jazz all stars.  it was a great show, and it was nice to catch up with ksw, who we haven’t seen for too long.  if you’re visiting seoul & see that he’s playing somewhere, then you really should go to the show.

there’s a fair few videos of KoN on youtube (search for nuevo gypsy violinist KoN )

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.

MDkyoto64Frwe just had a great long-weekend (for lunar new year) in kyoto, japan.  fantastic city, which you should visit if you’re going to japan.

anyway, here’s an old recording made in kyoto, from miles davis’ 1964 japan tour.  i’ve got 3 different versions of this, and had a lot of difficulty choosing which one to post here.  there’s another version (in mp3) on bigozine2.com, which is also where the cd covers come from (except on the front cover, i removed “mp3 version”).

hooligan3244 said he ‘ripped this from cd 2 of “the unissued japanese concerts” (label
domino 891212). while converting the wav to flac, tlh created the md5. most of the info
is added from peter plosin’s “miles ahead”.’
