Bley/Peacock/Motian - Trevano 1999 - now on dime

For once again I share something over on dime - a partial re-seed, with two more tunes added from my own "vault":


This is an extended version of unclewolfi's seed here:

#1-7 are unchanged, so you can copy them from the previous folder into the new folder created by this torrent. Just start this torrent, wait till it picks up, check the respective folder, overwrite #1-7 with the files from wolfi's torrent's folder, and you'll only need to grab #8-9!

#8-9 come from the same source I seeded previously (see the info jazzrita posted in the comments to wolfi's seed)

No art included, just in case - the setlist was screwed up on wolfi's seed anyway - maybe you want to create new art adapting your previous one, wolfi?

Wolfi's seed (#1-7) had the titles #2/#3 and #5/#6 reversed

I did NOT change anything about #1-7 though, in order to make this seed faster and allow people to pick up with #1-7 from Wolfi's seed. #8/9 are tagged fully and include the corrected setlist, too (in the comments field).

Trio 3 + Irene Schweizer - Zurich 2007 (Unerhoert 1/4)

Some folks asked for some of the Unerhört seeds I put up on dime a while ago - four of them I'll share here, the two lesser known Swiss groups of Yves Reichmuth and Lucas Niggli would not get more than half a dozen or a dozen downloads, so I won't bother.

These uploads are all in lossless FLAC format, by the way!

Here's the first instalment of four, and probably already the highlight, the meeting of piano giant and hometown heroine, Irene Schweizer (her releases on Intakt), with a trio of giants of Great Black Music, Oliver Lake, Reggie Workman and Andrew Cyrille (also known as "Trio 3" - their new disc on Intakt).

This concert, it seems, was professionally recorded - I hope for a CD release on Intakt, but I have no idea if it was them or some radio station that taped it. As far as I know, the concert hasn't been broadcast yet, so this recoring of yours truly is the only way to dig it for the time being.
