I keep losing whatever I type - it really sucks. This is the third attempt to post this. Of course all the links and stuff is gone each time. And I keep getting too big spaces between paragraphs and other such things. Is blogger out with a beta version or what?
Anyway, back to the music. This is another seed departing from much of what I mostly shared so far, including hammond organ (remember my Dr Lonnie Smith post from earlier this year), played no less by the great Rhoda Scott. On tenor is Rick Margitza, who got an early start in the 80s with one of Miles Davis' last bands, then went on to produce a string of great albums under his own name, while also appearing with Maria Schneider's orchestra and more recently with the outfit Mourtin Reunion led by the French Moutin brothers. Leader of this trio is young French drummer Anne Paceo who got a carte blanche to put together a band of her choice.
On a sad note, this show - taken from dime and edited by yours truly - represents one of the last "Jazz Club" shows from France Musique. Claude Carrière and Jean Delmas have done this show since 1982 and it featured weekly two hour live shows, broadcast from clubs in Paris, but occasionally also from other places in France or neighbouring countries. It's very sad that they decided to end their programme (I don't know the reasons, I just heard the news).
