notes
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.

so i listened to the other jj johnson shows, and they were both very nice.  here’s the later of those other two.  not quite bookmarking johnson’s career (he didn’t pass away until 2001), but with the other show you have very much “early and late” j.j. johnson.  also, unlike the other two shows that i have, this one includes several compositions by johnson which i think makes it more interesting in some ways.
