happy new year!

here’s another illinois jacquet show, to keep the mumbai 1994 show company.  i only downloaded this recently, but the torrent was stuck at 99.9% for the longest time… i’d given up all hope and then, magically, it finished up overnight!  flushed with excitement, i’m immediately uploading it!  well, no, actually:  i’ve already listened to this around 3 times over the past couple of days (only the info and checksum files were incomplete).   but now i can share this without any caveats about incomplete downloads.  thanks to ellaguru who share this in march 2017

mario_14stor_19607_tbigthis is the only thing i’ve ever heard by illinois jacquet (unless we count stuff on the radio where i didn’t know who was playing, i guess).  ‘plaz_restore’ shared it on dime, after doing a lot of work on it (the ‘restore’ part of his moniker isn’t just an empty word, eh?).

no cd cover, but at the moment there’s a cartoon of illinois jacquet for sale in mumbai — it’s surely from this 1994 show.  click on the image to go to the art dealer’s website.
