here’s a show that i was enjoying this evening in between phone calls. ‘survivor69’ shared it on dime in june 2014 and described it well: quite classic jazz. and very cheery, i thought, a real pick me up. survivor69 called the show parker’s mood, since these long tracks are mostly from the album “woman’s land” , and somehow are intended in bird’s mood…, and di battista had an album “parker’s mood”. i suppose that all hangs together. speaking of charlie parker, i was also listening to stars of modern jazz, a phenomenal bootleg with several tracks by charlie parker. look for that up next. synchronicity.
but this has been mouldering away on my hard drives, probably unheard since i first downloaded it and gave it a listen. i listen to virtually everything that i download, except the videos — for some reason, those are often overlooked. so a lot of stuff never gets a second look. unless, as today, i pick a random show. today was “s” day; and so stefano di battista. mind you, some still doesn’t get a 2nd listen past the first song. but other shows make it into the car… or even up here.

these long tracks are mostly from the album “woman’s land”, and somehow are intended in bird’s mood… quite classic jazz, i would say… also included in the folder as track 00 a radio introduction in italian with bio notes and commentaries – this intro runs for 2’39”, you can skip downloading it if you don’t understand italian.
