travelling again.  i brought a long an ssd usb drive that i’d stocked up with a bunch of music at some point in the past.  kind of interesting – what was i listening to, more or less, almost exactly 2 years ago?  there was a while when susanne abbuehl was a regular in the rotation in the car, but a bit earlier if memory serves…  uploaded in dec 2009 by ‘bleyplay’, so maybe a good bit earlier.  whatever, it still works for me, and listening to it again i remember track 5, “mane na”, was a favorite (and i still love it, so two samples today).  anyway, this show is around 6 months after, and with the same line-up as, her first album.  or at ecm records

here’s another offering from the fine folks at ‘planet fun camp’, who recorded a number of great shows at the sidedoor in old lyme, connecticut.  i search for them periodically on dime, just to make sure i don’t miss any.  this is a super recording (as always) of a show that i think is sure to please.  big thanks to “lisa e.” who was the planet fun camp attendee!

yes, i’m a bit of sucker for music of kurt weill, of hanns eisler, and of their work with bertolt brecht.  here’s a great show that ‘unclewolfi’ shared on dime just over a year ago.  i don’t have many shows with music by hanns eisler, unfortunately.  this show, and a few tracks on a bbc proms from 1996, and his ‘hollywood elegies’ (see kate westbrook ‘good-bye peter lorre’ on this blog).  and cds of course (i just ordered a cd by karyn levitt, actually).  see the international hanns eisler society or the north american hanns eisler forum for some good cd lists.
