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.”

ok, i haven’t actually been listening to this one like crazy.  i was, however, listening* to a great 1964 charlie parker tribute that echinops seeded on dime, and that got me pulling out the few charlie parker shows that i have for a relisten, including this one, which was (re?)seeded by u014945 after high hiss reduction + click pop elimination
* yes in my car again; i don’t actually drive much, would you believe

in his latter career, bird was a free agent, and bands were made of local musicians backing him up.

none of these songs are from the offical release, “bird at the high hat” on blue note.
the dates used on that were from 1953-12-19 and 1954-01-24.
