to make space, i have been archiving some shows that i have only in video format and demuxing them.  here’s one that, somewhat unusually, had audio in a lossless format (still a large enough file!).  been a while since i’ve posted any miles davis up here.  and almost as long without listening to any of his music from this period, so giving this a good listen was a lot of fun.

it’s mostly a very good recording, but has a few issues:  first, volume drops (and lost one track, i think?) for a brief period in the middle.  second, while it played with no problem in foobar2000, the .flac & underlying .wav show up as corrupt or truncated.  third, it’s not tracked (i’ve arbitrarily provided a sample of the first 10 minutes, without regard to the music).  finally, the date is questionable: i think it may have been a day or two later, as far as i can tell from the internet, but i’ve left the date as it was.

the original info file notes that the “first 15m35s missing from video. slideshow filler used. sync issues at times due to tape stretching”.
so there are probably some built-in audio issues.

yesterday, i played dexter gordon all day long, and this show (or rather, shows: with a companion performance by stan getz) really struck my fancy.  it’s not as originally shared by ‘itzero’ on dime in oct 2010, as i’ve added the song titles to the filenames (“05.flac” is so prosaic!), and having done that, went ahead & split the two performances into two separate folders.  so, here’s a little thanksgiving treat for y’all.  enjoy!

meanwhile, it’s been a busy old time around here:  pharoah sanders last week, madeleine peyroux on tuesday and camille o’sullivan this saturday.  it never rains but it pours, i guess.  pharoah sanders himself was excellent, but the rest of the group without him didn’t thrill me (and the sound seemed off, particularly for the band); still, even with his rests, it was a pretty astounding concert for a man in his mid 70s.  madeleine peyroux’s show, on the other hand, had no sound issues and she seemed to be having a lot of fun – i know the audience did.  and next, it’s high hopes for saturday at the olympia & camille o’sullivan, who i saw in her amazing version of shakespeare’s ‘rape of lucrece’ (do not miss it, if you ever, ever get a chance).  then next week, it’s back to the local jazz scene — which is great!  i only wish i had time to go to more shows.

here’s another:  french violinist didier lockwood playing with one of my favorite pianists, antonio faraò (no, not french).  curiously, as i was putting this together here, separate shows by lockwood and faraò were shared on dime.  there’s another faraò show here on cipjazz, btw.

following on the last post, here’s a french group that i’d noted a few months ago (yet another long delay before really coming to my attention:  cosmikd shared this on dime, back in 2011; that’s two in a row from him, actually… let’s give a big shout out to cosmikd!).

it’s a disappointment that there’s no real jazz show, broadcasting concerts, left on the air here in ireland (though there is a little bit of jazz).

listening to this, i thought that it might be time for me to dig into french jazz musicians a bit more.  actually, what got me thinking that was looking up these musicians on the internet:  like gildas boclé, who apparently has a brother jean-baptiste who is also a musician; or sébastien texier, who has played with his father, henri texier among others.  and then recently, i downloaded a couple of shows by marc ducret.  and all that got me thinking of françois corneloup (one of my earliest, and rather flawed, off-the-air recordings was a concert of his).  well, i stopped there before i could disappear down a rabbit hole.   now if we could only get french dj’s to shut up…. anyway, this show was shared on dime by cosmikd back in early 2011.

i downloaded a show by eddy louiss today  or was it yesterday, which really knocked my socks off.  a quick search turned up a few shows with eddy louiss as a sideman, including this one which also knocked my socks off, with both him and rené thomas in getz’s quartet.  it’s a killer combination, and there are a number of compositions by louiss or thomas, according to the setlist.  ¿que mas hay?
