while i think that you simply cannot go wrong with eddie ‘lockjaw’ davis, ever, i was a bit skeptical about sax, organ, guitar and drums.  well, ok, not very skeptical about the drums and i do like organ music more than i used to.  but no: it’s a corker of a show alright, and ‘plan [Read more…]

not much to say about this:  just good jazz that i sometimes think i could listen to all day.  need more be said, really?  i was sorry not to find any webpage for justin robinson, as i thought he was very good  here, so i added a bio on allaboutjazz.com.  shared on dime by ‘elgaucho’ [Read more…]

here’s a show by my current favorite trumpet player, avishai cohen, with his siblings.  this show was part of a 3-week tour of europe for the release of their (then) new cd “family“, released in may 2012 in europe (october 2011 in the us). they performed a number of tracks from the cd.  a great show, [Read more…]

this ended up here sort of backwards.  i’ve flagged the occasional show as for sharing here, and feeling like listening to something that i’d be sure to like while demuxing a few more videos, i filtered the list for those shows and picked one at random.  it’s a little gem of a show, with ray [Read more…]

to make space, i have been archiving some shows that i have only in video format and demuxing them.  here’s one that, somewhat unusually, had audio in a lossless format (still a large enough file!).  been a while since i’ve posted any miles davis up here.  and almost as long without listening to any of [Read more…]

yesterday, i played dexter gordon all day long, and this show (or rather, shows: with a companion performance by stan getz) really struck my fancy.  it’s not as originally shared by ‘itzero’ on dime in oct 2010, as i’ve added the song titles to the filenames (“05.flac” is so prosaic!), and having done that, went [Read more…]

here’s another:  french violinist didier lockwood playing with one of my favorite pianists, antonio faraò (no, not french).  curiously, as i was putting this together here, separate shows by lockwood and faraò were shared on dime.  there’s another faraò show here on cipjazz, btw. didier lockwood and antonio farao quartet duc des lombards paris, france 7 [Read more…]

following on the last post, here’s a french group that i’d noted a few months ago (yet another long delay before really coming to my attention:  cosmikd shared this on dime, back in 2011; that’s two in a row from him, actually… let’s give a big shout out to cosmikd!). it’s a disappointment that there’s [Read more…]

listening to this, i thought that it might be time for me to dig into french jazz musicians a bit more.  actually, what got me thinking that was looking up these musicians on the internet:  like gildas boclé, who apparently has a brother jean-baptiste who is also a musician; or sébastien texier, who has played [Read more…]
