Kahil El'Zabar / Lester Bowie / Malachi Favors - Saalfelden 1987 (AUD > FLAC)

Here's another show I grabbed from dime, quite some time ago. I edited it a couple of weeks back and thought this might find a bit of a bigger audience if I spread it in the blogosphere. I hope you'll enjoy it!

This is again in FLAC format, as will be a pair of other shows I already upped on rapidshare.

Love this guy's stuff. A person whom I respect a great deal asked me of KE'z, "How many times can he go back to that well?" [speaking of the chanting, rhythmic singing that is his trademark]

I replied, "As many times as it works."

sotise, after the sad disappearance of Church #9 I consider insol the best place there is for free(ish) jazz - tons of rare stuff up there!
I'm honoured that you enjoy my own blog, which I consider very modest by comparison.
