elvin jones quartet - xx october 1972, jam session, french television

here’s a quick upload of a short show by one of my favorite drummers.  it’s demuxed audio from an ancient recording from french tv.  the audio specs are, in my view, a bit dubious, but the sound is quite good (as is the lineup).  so who knows? speaking of lineup, the announcer at the beginning [Read more…]

engel|jacobson|maynard - 25 oct 2017, dwarf jar, dublin ireland

this was up on dime a few days after the show at the dwarf jar cafe, down on the quays here in dublin. it’s a pretty good recording (despite everything mentioned), which probably says more about the band than anything.  it’s a crazy venue, the way they’ve taken advantage of the high ceiling.  i’ve been [Read more…]

manuel valera quartet - 11 apr 2014, sidedoor jazz club, old lyme ct, usa

i put this on sort of at random while rearranging the office/guestroom, and liked it so much that i’m uploading it now that the room is a bit better sorted out.  ok, it’s not actually a guestroom until the sofabed arrives, but soon… it was a nice surprise to see that this was another show [Read more…]

sam rivers trio - 26 sept 1975, l'église notre-dame-des-blancs-manteaux, paris france

i was just trolling through the hard drive looking for something that didn’t look familiar (it’s been a good day), and saw a big bunch of sam rivers shows.  remember:  i’m not mr. memory.  so it was “sam who? and why do i have so many?”  curiously, i definitely disliked the first two that i [Read more…]

last month, the nice folks at ‘planetfuncamp’ (aka dime user ‘dagon333’) uploaded a 2014 buster williams show at the sidedoor jazz club in old lyme, ct.  i enjoyed it immensely (like all the planetfuncamp uploads by dagon333), in particular the saxophone, though the bass solo was definitely the highlight. i found that i had one [Read more…]
