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’ in march 2014.

also in the news, i finally updated the listing of all posts here.  lot of catchup, but a quick mysql query, dump the details into excel and finish the html formatting there… and didn’t even take long.  looking at the list, i realized that this blog has been up 6 years, as of last month, and this makes 275 shows (almost all of which are still available here).

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.

‘survivor69’ who uploaded this on dime in late 2010 called this ‘this is “average” jazz (and i nowhere mean it badly) like you heard it hundreds of time‘.  maybe…  i was listening to it earlier today, while listening to it while working away like mad, and it was just right for the moment.  maybe ‘straight jazz, no pretensions’?  be that as it may, i listened to another rosario giuliana show, from 2001, which was also good, but not quite such a fit for my mood.  so you get this one.


rosario giuliani “lennies pennies” quartet
auditorium of parco della musica
rome, italy
26 april 2010

rosario giuliani, alto saxophone
dado moroni, pianoforte [replacing roberto terenzi, who’s actually playing in track 09]

01-lennies pennies [lennie tristano] 10.24
02-band’s intro 1.32
03-love letters [victor young] 5.20
04-drums solo 3.55
05-74 miles away [joe zawinul] 7.52
06-how deep is the ocean [irving berlin] 10.48
07-picchi [giuliani] 9.08
08-introduction to terenzi 1.58
09-over lines [giuliani] 8.33
10-goldfish [giuliani] 8.49
11-band’s intro and thanks over goldfish 4.34
12-the peacocks [jimmy rowles] 9.42
13-radio outro by oreste bossini 0.33

running time 96″02″ (without interview would be 82’33”)

fm radio broadcast by “il cartellone – radio 3 suite jazz”, radio 3 rai [third channel of italian national radio], on tuesday 21 september 2010, 20:46 hours.

itt hifi4060 tuner > audacity 1.3.5 beta via c-media cmi8738/c3dx soundcard > 44100hz/16bit flac’s (level 8) > dimeadozen.org

introducing his latest album “lennies pennies” (dreyfus jazz, 2010), strangely without his usual cohort pieranunzi, this is “average” jazz (and i nowhere mean it badly) like you heard it hundreds of time. but it kinda rocks, i would say… also included in the folder, marked as track 00, an introduction and telephone interview in italian with giuliani – this interview runs for 12’55”

i’ve been clearing some videos off my hard drive, and demuxing them in the process.  really, i don’t watch videos, and am only ever likely to listen to the soundtrack demuxed into an .m4a or .mp2.  i do keep the original videos, except of course that most of them were on a separate drive, which not being backed up crashed around a year ago.  but at least a lot of those had been demuxed.

anyway, here are three that transitioned in the past few days.  hard to say which i preferred.  as always, the demux is in the same format as the original… generally, i use mediacoder to extract the audio in ‘copy audio’ mode.  as i think i said before, these are an exception to my ‘flac only’ habit, but at fairly high quality (and with no alternative), you can take your chance.  oh, and if you’re not sure how to play .m4a / .mp2, try foobar2000.

additional notes from original info file:
this lady in the same league as billie or sarah vaugham appeared for ten consecutive nights in a old unused church where many festival shows of the past decade took place: i don’t know which precise night is this from. note: the “live at umbria jazz” official egea cd was recorded instead at giardini del frontone the following year, and featured mark simon in place of a here stunning colley
sorry, no tracklist given for the moment, it’s a sixty and more minutes video with a couple of minutes of italian tv intros at the beginning…

à propos
——–
à 77 ans, le big boss du free jazz poursuit son errance musicale à travers les festivals les plus prestigieux.

résumé
——
il y a 50 ans, archie shepp publiait son premier album en leader, produit par john coltrane : « four for trane ». né en 1937, celui qui se destinait au métier d’acteur s’est rapidement tourné vers le saxophone et l’enseignement avant d’être l’un des premiers musiciens de free jazz à être enregistré.

très actif dans les années 1960, archie shepp s’est toujours illustré, au travers d’une longue carrière controversée, par son engagement politique et par son attachement au blues. le temps d’un soir pour jazz à la villette, « archie va jouer le blues » aux côtés de la pianiste-chanteuse amina claudine myers (associée à l’aacm de chicago) et du guitariste joe louis walker qui, lors de ses jeunes années, a partagé la scène avec ses idoles john lee hooker et jimi hendrix.
