here’s a nice show from the national concert hall in dublin that i recorded off the air & seeded on dime in 2007. it’s a great show, and very well recorded but wasn’t so good for folks who actually attended.
the rté announcer comments on the “truly tragic quality of the sound”. and when i seeded this on dime, retnull described it as “the worst live sound i’ve ever heard”. but, fortunately, as the the rté announcer added, “rté’s soundman was a bit wiser, and the recorded sound is very good indeed.”
the jazz alley show on rté has been dropped in my absence, which is really too bad.
finally, a shout out to the fine folks at waltons music and the waltons new school of music (where my daughter studied piano until we moved away). this was one of the waltons world masters series, and their support for that series (and this show) is appreciated.
