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 seeded this on dime, retnull described it as “the worst live sound i’ve ever heard”.   but, fortunately, as the the rté announcer added, “rté’s soundman was a bit wiser, and the recorded sound is very good indeed.”

the jazz alley show on rté has been dropped in my absence, which is really too bad.

finally, a shout out to the fine folks at waltons music and the waltons new school of music (where my daughter studied piano until we moved away).  this was one of the waltons world masters series, and their support for that series (and this show) is appreciated.

here’s the fantastic eddie palmieri in a show that i downloaded in august 2011, and have listened to quite a bit since, including earlier today in the car back from lille, france.  as my wife said, this isn’t music that anybody could sleep through (and indeed she didn’t).  just the thing for a quick 75 minute flit back north to brussels on a saturday afternoon.  lille itself was lovely despite being cold and often cloudy.  if you find yourself in the north of france, it’s well worth a weekend stay at the very least, and don’t miss the palais des beaux arts.
