this show was just before they recorded obscure companion in march 2017.  it’s nice that such a great show has also a fine recording.  the recording method “zoom f8 + zoom f4 (synchronized)” is interesting, first time i’ve noticed two aud sources like that, but then i’m not obsessive about that sort of thing.  whatever, it really worked well and, for that, a tip o’ the hat to ricola (that makes two in as many days! we don’t need to be chintzy).

happy international jazz day!

this show had a very similar lineup to ‘the chris flory quintet featuring scott hamilton’.  coming up next, another (also fantastic but even shorter) show featuring scott hamilton, in the ‘concord superband’ with warren vache among others.  i’ve corrected the line up below (the drums & piano were swapped) but haven’t updated the text file (already uploaded it and feeling lazy).

tomorrow is international jazz day.  i don’t really have anything special lined up for this blog, didn’t plan ahead, silly me, but will spend much of the day wasting time and listening to jazz (two different things & which go together very well) unless we do the bray-to-greystones cliff walk, now that our travel limit has increased to the longer of 20km or the county border.

don’t be deceived by the mention below of flutes and voices:  this is a percussion concert.  while i like drums and percussion (who doesn’t?), 50 minutes of it is normally more than i care for.  but this was a serious exception!  a big tip o’ the hat to ‘carville’ and the mysterious ‘dc’.

and good old wpfw!  they’re still going strong (and could probably use your donation, as always).

it’s great to see there’s still the odd torch song out there waiting to be reprised.  this show is a great concept, and paloma faith’s voice is so well suited to it.  i feel as if i recognize all the songs, but no, i’m also quite certain that i’ve not heard the ones by paloma faith herself.

and guy barker is quite the thing.  i saw his kind of blue – orchestrated with the rté concert orchestra, almost two years ago now.  it was super, i’d go see anything he was involved in.

unrelated to the above, dublin’s musictown 2021 kicks off today, running through the 25th with free online events everyday.  check it out.

another b3 great, joey defrancesco!  this was actually sitting quietly in a tab in foobar2000 for a while — after giving it another listen, i might just keep that tab open… no seriously,  this is a real picker-upper if you’re feeling a bit lethargic.  good party music too, not that we’re going to a lot of parties just now.  go wild!

it’s getting very hard to find anything to post here as there is simply so much coming through on dime at the moment.  i cannot keep up (not that anyone can, but…) and it’s even harder on a long weekend like this one, not spending hours a day enjoying the jazz while i work (all in all, i’ll take the weekend 🙂 ).  it’s the opposite of the old joke about the food.
