i was looking for a show by a different billy, which seems to be missing, and ended up listening to this.  tantalizingly, the info file says “disc one”.  where is disc two?  anyway, this performance was just 3 weeks before billy harper (& this same lineup) recorded black saint, which includes “croquet ballet”.  maybe the missing disc two includes “dance, eternal spirits, dance!” and “call of the wild and peaceful heart”…

no, i’m not sharing it, but i noticed that this 4.4gb collection is available at plumdusty’s page.  if you don’t have this, it’s worth the effort to download it.  4.4 gigs seemed soooo much to download when i got it back in 2004, on a considerably slower internet connection that most people have now.  some of the tracks have been released, here and there, i believe.  here’s the artwork JohnColtrane-LiveTraneUnderground-artwork.zip in case plumdusty doesn’t have it.

here’s a little more hammond b3 that’s been lurking on my drives for around 6 years, from sam salomone / sam anthony.  you can find out a bit about sam salomone from the central iowa blues society, including that he was inducted into the iowa jazz hall of fame.   ‘scooter123’ shared this in a folder labelled 1974-1975, but the info file said just 1974, so  i wonder if this is a compliation.  btw, i’ve reencoded the flac files.

tapers notes:

god bless sam salomone, for without him i may not have discovered jazz and jimmy smith. he played
a hammond b3 with pedles and a leslie of course. he was joined by frank tribble and tommy gordon.
this trio was joined by ella ruth pigee. they were the house band at a dump of a place called
ernie’s urban lounge. stemzie hunter of the electric flag joined them on sax, so they were really
a quartet, but whose counting. sam also got me into taping every concert i ever saw, no matter what
because if you don’t tape it, its only a memory.

the track list is mostly jazz standards, and i can’t recall them, so help me out with the titles of
the tracks.

update december 2018:

the flac files would not play in foobar2000. i tested them several ways, finding nothing wrong with
them… except that foobar2000 wouldn’t play. using tlh, i decoded and re-encoded (flac 5) the files.
i also created new ffp and md5 checksum files. in principle, the music should be identical to that
in the original flacs.

happy new year!

here’s another illinois jacquet show, to keep the mumbai 1994 show company.  i only downloaded this recently, but the torrent was stuck at 99.9% for the longest time… i’d given up all hope and then, magically, it finished up overnight!  flushed with excitement, i’m immediately uploading it!  well, no, actually:  i’ve already listened to this around 3 times over the past couple of days (only the info and checksum files were incomplete).   but now i can share this without any caveats about incomplete downloads.  thanks to ellaguru who share this in march 2017
