here’s one from the nrk archives, and a video to boot.  this is a phenomenal video (except for a short glitch in the middle), so i’m making an exception to my ‘no videos on account of they’re too large’ for the moment.

gary bartz – ss, as
keith jarrett – el-p, org

james mtume forman – cga, perc

original broadcast date: 8 june 1972

video: mpeg-4 (avc high@l3.1), bit rate 2250 kbps, 1280×720 (16:9), 25.000 fps
audio: aac-lc, 160 kbps, 48.0 khz, 2 channels

– this was also seeded on dimeadozen (torrent #556735), but this .flv file was
downloaded directly from the nrk.no website, not via the seed on dimeadozen.
– as noted on the dime seed, ‘the abrupt interuption of tv translation is between
00:32:59 and 00:35:34 during “what i say”. a part of don alias conga solo is
missing.’ from the way the picture & sound fade back in, it looks like a problem
with the original recording &/or transmission. i’d like to remove that 2-1/2
minutes, but don’t know how without transcoding; maybe someday.
– setlist & line-up are from the dime seed, which took it from the peter losin site

MDFwFr1_thumbnailafter checking for new jazz shows on dime, i had a look at the oldest running jazz seed: this show by miles davis is still on dime after almost 9 years (it’ll be 9 years on  17-may-2014).  wow.  i don’t even know who the seeder was — they’re now just listed as “unknown”.  it was an fm broadcast, recorded from the soundboard… the quality is superb.  and late 1970 is a fantastic period for miles, imho.

artwork:  i’ve included cd covers by jamie lochhead, from his site jaime lockhhead.co.uk (see his terms of use).

miles davis septet
fillmore west auditorium, san francisco ca
15 october 1970
kpfa-fm radio broadcast

miles davis (tpt)
gary bartz (ss, as)
keith jarrett (el-p, org)
michael henderson (el-b)
jack dejohnette (d)
airto moreira (perc)
jumma santos [jim riley] (perc)

01-honky tonk
02-what i say (incl. radio broadcast voiceover announcement)
05-bitches brew
06-funky tonk-the theme

total time: 63:49 mns

– this is not taken from the fillmore tree. the fillmore tree version is about 25 mns. this here is almost the complete show, only “directions”, the set-opener is missing: total time is about 64 mns. this fm source sounds great.

– according to p.losin: “the davis septet opened for leon russell and sea train for four nights at the fillmore west, october 15-18 (thursday-sunday). columbia probably recorded these shows, and the fillmore certainly did. none of the recordings of this show that i have heard includes “directions,” the standard set-opener…”
