the tommy flanagan trio at the international jazz festival amsterdam (de meervaart), thursday
through saturday, august 11-13, 1983. the trio acted as the festival’s “trio in residence”.
the trio had several guests passing through on these three days: guitarists herb ellis & emily
remler (august 11); tenor saxophonists von freeman & james moody (august 12); and trombonists
buster cooper & al grey (august 13).
before the sets with guests, the trio had their own sets. dutch radio broadcasts: all three
concerts were recorded and later aired in more than 10 separate broadcasts. radio announcements
by the late michiel de ruyter.
these were originally seeded in 4 separate seeds on dime: all the trio tracks of the three
successive nights in one separate upload of the tommy flanagan trio; and a separate seed for
the performances with the guests on each night. (the trio seed included “like someone in love”,
set 2 track 8 above, as it featured only the trio.)
this has been repackaged to present the entire performance from 12 aug 1983, with set 1 by
the trio, and set 2 by the trio with von freeman and james moody.
these notes have largely been copied from the original seeder’s notes.
