just installed an iogear 2-port hd-cable kvm switch (model gcs62su).  setup was easy, & it’s working great.  the audio however follows the kvm switch, which i don’t want.  my workaround is streamwhatyouhear, so the jazz plays on both home & work computers.   also, latency on my home computer: 10-15 seconds to switch the keyboard & [Read more…]

even though i posted a george coleman show from 12 nov 1979 back in january this year, i can’t resist posting this one.  it’s a good recording but not perfect (the seeder or taper rated it b+), and oh my goodness but this goes on and on (though in fairness, it is over two nights). [Read more…]

here’s another freddie hubbard show, from almost exactly 10 years later.  why have one when two will do as well or (as here) even better?  saturday turned into a bit of a hubbard-fest around here, not stopping with two shows, but that’s all for tonight. this was (re)seeded by ubu on dime back in 2008.

finally got our car up & running, those little things like insurance, license plates, etc can be a challenge in the right (or wrong) circumstances.  so, driving to work on friday in the car for the first time, i had a handful of usb thumb drives, but out of all that, this show was the [Read more…]

vijay iyer trio - 2 july 2016, iowa city jazz festival, iowa usa

jimmy heath and nat adderley - 23 july 1995, nhk 505, tokyo japan

well, i was on a bit of a heath bros kick today.  which, by the way, is quite the way to get a day’s work in.  like those old lucky ads said:  picks you up when you’re down, calms you down when you’re tense.  etc etc. started with jimmy heath and the heath brothers at [Read more…]

mccoy tyner septet - 6 july 2006, national concert hall, dublin ireland

here’s a nice show from the national concert hall in dublin that i recorded off the air & seeded on dime in 2007.  it’s a great show, and very well recorded but wasn’t so good for folks who actually attended. the rté announcer comments on the “truly tragic quality of the sound”.  and when i [Read more…]

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…]

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 [Read more…]
