lounge lizards - 7 nov 1981, philharmonie, berlin, germany

the lounge lizards seem to have always been lurking somewhere on the edges of the music i’m listening to, going back to around the time of this concert.  a track on a college radio station, an lp, or later a cd, at a friends house, etc etc.  and now this show from almost 40 years ago [Read more…]

nice to hear a male jazz singer for a change (though, tbh, i tend to prefer the female singers), and sachal vasandani is super.  rather frustratingly, sachal vasandani was at arthur’s pub here in dublin back in october… and i wasn’t.  it was a monday night, and i just hadn’t checked what was coming up.  sigh!  [Read more…]

helen schneider "a walk on the weill side" - 26 oct 1989, hebbel theatre, berlin, germany

weill and sondheim!  in one tidy 2 hour package!  while i have a lot of weill, i don’t have much sondheim.  though i downloaded ‘sweeney todd’ yesterday, on the foot of running across this.  years ago – 12? 13?- i saw a phenomenal production of ‘sweeney todd’; an internet search suggests it must have been the [Read more…]

i was looking for a show by a different billy, which seems to be missing, and ended up listening to this.  tantalizingly, the info file says “disc one”.  where is disc two?  anyway, this performance was just 3 weeks before billy harper (& this same lineup) recorded black saint, which includes “croquet ballet”.  maybe the [Read more…]

here’s a little more hammond b3 that’s been lurking on my drives for around 6 years, from sam salomone / sam anthony.  you can find out a bit about sam salomone from the central iowa blues society, including that he was inducted into the iowa jazz hall of fame.   ‘scooter123’ shared this in a folder labelled [Read more…]

happy new year! here’s another illinois jacquet show, to keep the mumbai 1994 show company.  i only downloaded this recently, but the torrent was stuck at 99.9% for the longest time… i’d given up all hope and then, magically, it finished up overnight!  flushed with excitement, i’m immediately uploading it!  well, no, actually:  i’ve already [Read more…]
