i was just trolling through the hard drive looking for something that didn’t look familiar (it’s been a good day), and saw a big bunch of sam rivers shows.  remember:  i’m not mr. memory.  so it was “sam who? and why do i have so many?”  curiously, i definitely disliked the first two that i sampled.  but number three…

MDkyoto64Frwe just had a great long-weekend (for lunar new year) in kyoto, japan.  fantastic city, which you should visit if you’re going to japan.

anyway, here’s an old recording made in kyoto, from miles davis’ 1964 japan tour.  i’ve got 3 different versions of this, and had a lot of difficulty choosing which one to post here.  there’s another version (in mp3) on bigozine2.com, which is also where the cd covers come from (except on the front cover, i removed “mp3 version”).

hooligan3244 said he ‘ripped this from cd 2 of “the unissued japanese concerts” (label
domino 891212). while converting the wav to flac, tlh created the md5. most of the info
is added from peter plosin’s “miles ahead”.’
