it’s the day for vienna, i guess.  had some trouble finding something that i felt like listening to (i’d been listening to a tom waits show and was thinking of posting it here, but it seems to be both on 100 greatest bootlegs and also on past daily.  sometimes, one little thing…).  but seriously, after listening to tom waits, what did i expect?  doh!

aaaaannyway, this finally caught my eye:  a lovely little two-fer from erich kleinschuster in the orf studios, from late 1969 & early 1970.  ‘rillenheini’ seeded them (separately) on dime in mid-2015, but they go together nicely (and are a bit short, individually).  and the vienna day?  salena jones in vienna & graz from 1973 popped up next somehow.

original seeder’s comment:  “found this tape in my vaults with the insufficient information “erich kleinschuster 10.10.1969 orf” … the recording probably was never broadcast.”

Monty Alexander 1998-08-22 CD Front Inserti’ve been listening to monty alexander all day, except when talking to people (a lot) or away (a bit).  been working very well for me today.  just… nice.  (probably shouldn’t use that word.  cheerful, maybe?  pleasant without being smooth jazz?  i don’t know.)  this one, the last, got the most smiles. despite which, ‘smile’ is not the sample.

sticking with that “graz” theme, here’s another that i downloaded at around the same time (mid 2011), also from a performance in graz.  but the similarities end there a bit… 11 trombonists vs 2 pianists?  hmmm.  both good, a bit different though.

the announcer does chat a bit between tracks, though, but not too much (unlike, say, most french announcers).
