i’ve enabled registration for the site, as an experiment.  if it gets clogged with spammers, i’ll just turn it off again.

you can register below to the right, where it says “register” in the ‘meta’ section.  or here: link

also, as mentioned earlier, i’ve added an rss feed.  actually, i see one in the ‘meta’ section also, but haven’t tried that link yet.  so you can give it a try, or use the feedburner rss feed, on the right sidebar under ‘follow cipjazz’rss-05

sheila-jordan-fritz-pauer-trio-1996-12-10-porgy-bess-front-coverwell, i liked that last one so much, i looked & found [part of] a 1968 concert by betty carter with the fritz pauer trio and this one, shiela jordan & the fritz pauer trio.  can you have too much of a good thing?  i think not in this case.  not sure if i’ll get to the betty carter show… only 3 songs, and i feel as if two uploads in a row is enough for the moment.  enjoy!

betty-carter-1993-10-22-cologne-front-coverthis is the combination of two seeds on dime back in 2010, combined to give what i think is the full show from 1993.  details are in the info file.  about the quality of betty carter, nothing need be said, and her backup is a pretty good lineup too!  it’s all fm-sourced, so the sound is excellent.  so just goodness all around, eh?  this is about my favorite of the betty carter concerts that i’ve heard.

the cd cover pic is based on a screencapture from a video online.

just to point ya to a great blog posting over at dr. fusion.  do not miss this


this is a nice long show.  but for me, actually, this seemed incredibly long.  i’d mp3’ed it for my car and accidentally queued up both the flacs and the mp3s on my computer.  after a number of deja vu moments, i finally realized that it was more than just a sense that i’d heard something before.  (i was a bit distracted, obviously….)

good choice for such a slipup!

and while you’re over at doc fusion’s…

t_monkquartet_tivolis_koncertsal_co_frontonlylistening to a bit of thelonious monk, i realized that i’d never posted a show of his here.  so high time that i did.  i was going to post 4 shows from march 1963, but then was listening to this one while i looked at them…  this was pitch fixed by ‘goody’, and it sounds very nice.

the covers came from rem2rigs who provided links to his .jpg files on photobucket here and here, when peterw seeded this on dime back in 2008.

pitch correction notes, set 1
pitch of 1-3 were approx. 78 cents flat. track 4-7 were approx. 102 cents sharp. 5 had/has extreme
pitch fluctuations/flutter, and this was a compromise solution just to get it sort of in tune.
corrected to the best of my ability. the piano is also not completely in tune with itself, further
complicating things…
fixed and flaced – goody – 2008-10-12

pitch correction notes, set 2
pitch of track 1 was approx. 1 semitone sharp. pitch of tracks 2-6 were approx. 38 cents sharp.
fixed and flaced. goody – 10-12-08

monkbook ( http://www.monkbook.com/sessionography/sessionography-1963-1965/ ) shows this as having been
at the odd fellow palæet, copenhagen

other notes from original info file
*thanks to carl-bernhard kjelstrup aka “red” or “cakjels” for this wonderful show.
*this reseed is upgraded sets and “pitch corrected edition” by goody. many thanks to him!

*thanks, peter, for all you’ve shared.
thanks, red! it’s an honor to upgrade your legacy! the beauty is in the music, although the quality
of the recordings have suffered over the years. we make do, though.
and i owe so much to thelonious. this barely scratches the surface. thanks for leaving this behind.

fronthere’s a quickie, just somethink that i was listening today while doing not much of anything…  the covers were in the original download by lewojazz on dime.  needless to say, the impossible gentlemen for some fairly obvious reason always makes me think of the league of gentlemen.  maybe the league of impossible gentlemen?  anyone pay money to see the film-of-the-concert for that?
