just installed an iogear 2-port hd-cable kvm switch (model gcs62su).  setup was easy, & it’s working great.  the audio however follows the kvm switch, which i don’t want.  my workaround is streamwhatyouhear, so the jazz plays on both home & work computers.   also, latency on my home computer: 10-15 seconds to switch the keyboard & mouse.  it’s a few years old, running win7.  my work laptop (new, with win10) has no such problem.

listening to tingvall trio right now.

even though i posted a george coleman show from 12 nov 1979 back in january this year, i can’t resist posting this one.  it’s a good recording but not perfect (the seeder or taper rated it b+), and oh my goodness but this goes on and on (though in fairness, it is over two nights).  so naturally, it was the first thing i put on a fresh usb drive for the car — currently more like a georgecolemanmobile, but then i don’t drive much here.

i’ve split the two nights into separate .zip files, but the info file & checksum files are for all files being in one folder.

notes:

thanks to bluenote2004 for the original seed of this in 2008. it listed the year and personnel incorrectly. many tunes were unidentified. some still are. check sound samples in comments.

sony soundforge pro 10.0 used to join fragments, redo track splits, eliminate blank spots between songs, equalize to boost bass with width of 1.4 octaves centered around 100 hz.

still needs pitch correction on some tracks – who can do?

07: interruptions during piano solo, with audio degradation and speed problems
16: interruption in sax solo between nocturne & autumn in ny. popping
18: beginning cut, interruption during piano solo
25: popping
26: popping, tape flip during piano solo
27: popping

finally got our car up & running, those little things like insurance, license plates, etc can be a challenge in the right (or wrong) circumstances.  so, driving to work on friday in the car for the first time, i had a handful of usb thumb drives, but out of all that, this show was the only thing that would play on the car stereo…

i downloaded this in august 2014, when ‘jazamo’ seeded it on dime, commenting that “here’s a nice set from freddie hubbard recorded in 1977. freddie moves away from his standard lineup replacing the tenor sax with electric guitar on this tour. re-seeded here in it’s original fm broadcast mp2 codec, the sound is excellent. many thanks to the original seeder!”   thanks, jazamo!

i’m not sure what made me think of vijay iyer the other day, but i ended up listening to 3 of his shows from 2016 over the course of the day today.  this one features tyshawn sorey on drums, and it took some looking to find him on the internet (“titian”, “tysion”, the list goes on… there was no lineup in the original info file).  each of the 3 shows had a different drummer, first the june 2016 frankfurt show had marcus gilmore on drums, then this show with tyshawn sorey & finally justin brown at the oct 2016 bimhuis show.
