all packed up, just waiting to fly out on monday.  meanwhile, i downloaded the 3rd of three consecutive nights of the horace silver quintet, from 1976.  two nights at the umbria jazzfest, after which the quintet decamped for juan-les-pins.

in a bit of serendipity that i’d not noticed before, a song missing from the 20th  is included with the show from the 21st.

one other thing: the info files aren’t always right, but in comments on dime, the seeders confirmed that the dates are all in 1976.  not 1977 or 1986.

so enjoy a mini “horace silver fest” as i wing my way westward.
