unlike the last posting, which really needed my attention, this is one i could listen to closely or let it play gently in the background as we chat away amongst ourselves, as the crowd that night seemed to be doing.  but fortunately that just gives ambience – it’s an excellent audience recording and chock-a-block full of familiar songs.

while a bit of this seemed very “60s” to me, most of it really grabbed my attention, slow, paced, pared down, a bit somber really.  the more i listen to this (on the 3rd time now), the  more i like it.

it’s been a jeremy pelt afternoon, listening to these two shows (early & late) and another (soundboard recording) from 2018 in lugano.  the sbd is arguably better, but i liked this more, and it’s an excellent “aud” recording.

following on the ari hoenig show that i saw & greatly enjoyed in greystones recently, i also booked in to see aja (not surprisingly, they’re a steely dan tribute band, but supposed to be good) in mid-november.  feeling very chuffed indeed, but then today a nice surprise:  the brad mehldau show that i booked at the start of march 2020 — which was of course cancelled, i don’t even remember when it was going to be — is next tuesday at the nch!  totally forgotten about that, not eeeeeven on my horizon.  guess i’ll mosey on into town!  “it never rains, but it pours!”  and who’ll use my second ticket?

here’s another “i” that i had stashed up in the cloud, and which ticks an awful lot of boxes.  there’s an interesting review of this show up at worldmusicandculture.com, including (which is fascinating) that maalouf “plays a microtonal trumpet that was invented by his father, which enables him to play the quarter tones that are essential to the performance of maqqam”.  who knew there even was such a thing?  kcrw has an article on this particular trumpt also, but apparently there have been others in the past, including one commissioned by jazz trumpeter don ellis.  as far as i can tell, they all have one thing in common:  a fourth valve.   and “microtonal“? the notes between the notes… you have to love something anything so interstitial (though i suppose in this case “interstitial” might depend on your perspective).

about time we had a show by at least one (never mind both!) of the jensen sisters here.  this is a very good audience recording of them in australia, a place from which i only have a few shows, or so it seems to me without counting, but including several excellent shows from the excellent sydney women’s jazz festival.  a tip o’ the hat to the bold ‘vierstein91’ who shared this & a number of other shows from that neck of the woods.

we’ll come back to “g” later, the only thing that i had stashed in the cloud was an april 1966 gunter hampel show which is still up on inconstant sol (pro tip: go get it!).  so on to “h”, with and all too short performance at studio 105, paris, by the hanna paulsberg quartet.  (somehow i always think of studio 104, not 105. poor old 105!)

there’s a nice write-up of the show, with some pics (including the one to the right) at jazzmagazine.com, that ended on a note i quite like, “a very nice discovery for all the spectators, obviously won over (just like yours truly), and the hope of hearing this great musician again”.

unrelated to any of that, open culture has an article watch jaco pastorius: the lost tapes documentary, the fan-made film on the most innovative bass player of all time that might be of interest.  (i’ve not actually watched it yet, but open culture is a pretty good site, so i have high hopes.)

finally, is it just me or is myspace a total waste of time?  never go there and can find out anything, even when i’m on the right page.  like, i don’t even link to it now.  #InternetSearchPerils anyone?

this has been lying around for around 11 years, when i was fortunate enough to download the more (and perhaps actually) complete version.  there’s something to be said for being congenitally late, i suppose.  charlie wright’s doesn’t ring a bell, which is funny: if it was part of the london jazz fest, you’d think it would have popped up in some other context (jazz related, obvs), but then i’m not from there, so what the heck.  around here, though, i’m off to my first show in a Very Long Time Indeed: the ari hoenig trio.  very much looking forward to it.
