cezar asked for a bit of the fritz pauer trio feat. betty carter, after i mentioned it on this post.  i had planned something else to celebrate being home in dublin (coming up next!), but thought what the heck?  also, i listened to it.  yes, only 11 mins with the fritz pauer group, but the [Read more…]

julian & roman wasserfuhr - 23 jan 2015, stadtkirche, darmstadt, germany

lately, i’ve been listening more to groups for whom i have few, or even only one, show (not to take away from the many great, and sadly often late, jazz musicians, from whom i might have rather more shows or cds).  generally, those are groups less familiar to me & there’s a tendency to comparatively new [Read more…]

cécile verny quartet - 11 february 2009, funkhaus halberg, saarbrücken germany

when i decided to upload this here, i realized that i’d also reseeded it on dime, almost exactly 3 years ago.  this was originally shared on dime by franka, almost exactly 8 years ago.  i guess april is “cécile verny month” around here…  it’s a topnotch fm recording, in mp2/320. www.cvq.de www.berndheitzler.de cécile verny quartet [Read more…]
