here’s the next of tonight’s random little twosome.  (unrelated:  in korea, there’s a chain of coffee shops called ‘a twosome place’.  took me a while to figure that one out.)  ‘cosmikd’ shared this on dime in march 2014.

here’s a quick upload.  i was listening to this back-to-back with the gaël horellou quartet w/ guest abraham burton from 2014 in paris.  a random choice:  the first two shows with foldernames starting with “g”.  sometimes, a bit of randomness & serendipity can pay off.  this was shared on dime by ‘survivor69’ in sept 2013.

a long career since the seventies as leader of idea trio (with the same roberto del piano and filippo monico as drummer) and titles like “cile libero, cile rosso” or “cantata rossa per tall el zaatar”, great tunes “in opposition” as his contemporaries area with fariselli and stratos, and massimo urbani. also included in the folder, marked as track 00, a radio introduction in italian with bio notes and commentaries – this intro runs for 3’54”, you can skip downloading it if you don’t understand italian. these should all be liguori’s own compositions

here’s a quick upload of a short show by one of my favorite drummers.  it’s demuxed audio from an ancient recording from french tv.  the audio specs are, in my view, a bit dubious, but the sound is quite good (as is the lineup).  so who knows?

speaking of lineup, the announcer at the beginning refers to “three young musicians” supporting jones…  steve grossman was 22, dave liebman was 27 and gene perla was 33.  a posting at says that this was “the live at the lighthouse group”.

performance date (from comment on blog)
29 may 1973 is the first broadcast date. actually this show was recorded late october 1972
in paris. on 20 october they played at warsaw jazz jamboree and two pieces (yesterdays and
children’s merry-go-round) were issued on polskie nagrania muza sxl 0929 (various artists –
jazz jamboree ’72). dave liebman left elvin quartet to join miles davis band in january 1973.

this was up on dime a few days after the show at the dwarf jar cafe, down on the quays here in dublin. it’s a pretty good recording (despite everything mentioned), which probably says more about the band than anything.  it’s a crazy venue, the way they’ve taken advantage of the high ceiling.  i’ve been trying to see if any of these lads are playing around town… and haven’t been able to make it to the dwarf jar for ages (mondays not being great for me lately).
