THE LOUNGE LIZARDS
Berlin 1981 [no label, 1CD]

Berliner Jazztage. Live at the Philharmonie, Berlin, Germany; November 7, 1981. Very good satellite broadcast.

The Lounge Lizards was an eclectic musical group founded by saxophonist John Lurie and his brother, pianist Evan Lurie, in 1978. Initially known for their ironic, tongue-in-cheek take on jazz, The Lounge Lizards eventually became a showcase for John Lurie’s sophisticated compositions straddling jazz and many other genres. They were active until about 1998 with the Lurie brothers as the only constant members, though many leading New York City based musicians were members of the group.

The group’s name was borrowed from American slang. A lounge lizard is typically depicted as a well-dressed man who frequents the establishments in which the rich gather with the intention of seducing a wealthy woman with his flattery and deceptive charm. - wikipedia

HERB ALPERT & LANI HALL
Newport Beach 2017 [no label, 2CD]

Back Bay Amphitheatre, Hyatt Regency Newport Beach, Newport Beach, CA; July 7, 2017. Very good mono audience recording.

Jackie Moe, ocregister.com:

It appears that trumpet legend Herb Alpert never puts his instrument down. When asked recently during a phone interview if he had any daily routines, Alpert answered by playing a 21-second jazz medley.

“My daily routine sounds something like that,” Alpert said with a laugh.

His devotion to his trumpet has paid off throughout a music career that has spanned over six decades, earning him nine Grammy Awards, 15 gold albums, 14 platinum albums and sales of more than 72 million records worldwide. Since his early days with his top-selling band Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass, Alpert has continued to record and tour unceasingly around the world.

Alpert will return to Newport Beach on Friday, July 7, to kick off the Hyatt Regency Summer Concert Series, performing with his wife, Grammy Award-winning singer Lani Hall and his band of more than 11 years. The set list will be spontaneous, said Alpert, with standards from the Tijuana Brass and Sergio Mendes & Brasil ’66, for which Hall was a lead vocalist in the late ’60s and early ’70s.

“We don’t have cookie-cutter concerts, we have a lot of spontaneity and improvise throughout the night according to how we feel,” said Alpert, “We give the audience the hits they want to hear, but we also direct the night by the mood or what I’m feeling particularly passionate about that evening.”

At age 83, Alpert is still receiving major honors, including his 10th Grammy nomination for the 2016 album “Human Nature.” He is set to release two albums this year, including “Music Vol. 1” on July 28, in which he collaborates with Jochem van der Saag, who has worked with artists such as Andrea Bocelli and Destiny’s Child. The second upcoming album is “The Christmas Wish,” set to be released in September and featuring a symphony and choir.

Thanks to taper markp; and to persic for sharing the the show at Dime.

Uploader’s note:

I do believe that Herb Alpert is the coolest man in any room and doesn’t actually need to be in the room to be the coolest man there - they save that distinction for him just in case he happens to wonder into the room. I have always felt he should play the most interesting man alive on the TV commercials.

I had an off chance meeting with him in the mid ’70s while i was in college. I went to Hollywood with some friends and we happened to be walking past A&M studios (no i was not aware) and as we were I saw a man talking with someone on the sidewalk and he looked like Herb Alpert (yes i owned Tijuana Brass albums) and like any stupid goofy teenager I asked out “are you Herb Alpert?” completely interrupting his conversation. He turned and looked at me and said something like “I believe I am”. And then he walked over a few steps and put out his hand and asked who I was, after some stammered response he wished me well as he did to my friends (who by the way had no idea who Herb Alpert was) and said he had to get back to his friend.

So Herb Alpert was and is the coolest man alive.

JEAN-LUC PONTY, BIRELI LAGRENE, KYLE EASTWOOD
Trio - France 2017 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the
Château de Fontainebleau, Paris, France; July 8, 2017. Very good FM.

This new adventure celebrates the reunion of three outstanding masters of their instruments. Jean-Luc Ponty, the undisputed pioneer of modern violin, Biréli Lagrène, the legitimate successor to Django Reinhardt, his equal in sheer creativity, and bassist Kyle Eastwood, who composed the music for many films of his father Clint and enriches with his fresh approach the solos of his two counterparts.

The combination of their unique styles, unexpected colours and virtuoso phrasing gives birth to a fascinating experience, creating a music that touches the audience and establishes new standards for the string trio. Jean-Luc Ponty - Biréli Lagrène - Kyle Eastwood Trio: the unique encounter of three jazzmen who are pushing the boundaries of imagination.

RAG’N'BONE MAN
Glastonbury 2017 [no label, 1CD]
Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts. Other Stage, Worthy Farm, Pilton, UK; June 25, 2017. Very good audio (ripped from HDTV webcast).

theargus.co.uk:

Rag’n'Bone Man performed at Glastonbury on Sunday (June 25) and said his set was “one of the best days of my life so far”. The 32-year-old, who is from Uckfield, appeared on the festival’s Other Stage and sang hits from his chart-topping debut album Human (released in February 2017) to a huge crowd. The star, real name Rory Graham, played a few hours before Sunday headliner Ed Sheeran took to the stage in Somerset. A visibly overwhelmed Graham said: “This is crazy. I can’t really believe I’m standing here to be honest… someone’s going to tell me it’s a mistake. You don’t know what it means for us to be here.” The singer is expecting a baby with his girlfriend of eight years Beth Rouy and he referenced this while addressing the Glastonbury crowd. He said: “I get to tell my baby when he grows up that I was doing this.”

The slot at the UK’s biggest festival capped a whirlwind year so far for the man who was named British Breakthrough Act at the Brit Awards, where he also received the Critics’ Choice Award. Human hit number one in the charts upon its release in February. Graham lived in Brighton for a number of years before moving to London but he is now settled in his birthplace Uckfield.

AL STEWART
Sweden 1973 [no label, 2CD]

Musikforum, Uppsala, Uppsala County, Sweden; April 1973. Very good mono soundboard.

Thanks to taper Lagga; and to kneesfudd for sharing the show at Dime.

kneesfudd noted:

- Warts: Almost none! Repaired dullspots and dropouts but surely missed a few and a couple could only be minimised. Slight residue remains from a couple of mike bumps. #213 has a hint of bass overload but in general increase your bass for more pleasure.
- Purist warning: #211 last 20 seconds were faded @ end. Fade fixed (volume raised) and 6 secs of applause spliced in to make it sound more natural.
- “Orange” recorded Sept 1971 and released Jan 1972. “Past, Present & Future” wasn’t issued ’til Oct 1973, so this is a kind of missing link.
- You’ve dreamt of a new Laggashoebox tape for well over a decade but you’ll hear it was well worth the wait!
- Sincere thanks to DIMER Lagga for sharing his recording & reminiscences.

Lagga’s notes (the taper):

“I first went to London in 1966 and one of the first persons I stumbled into was Al at Dobells Folkrecordstore. Over the years I saw Al many times in Cousins, Bunjies and other places. In 1972 Al played at Stockholm Student Union - a catastrophe - with a drunk and noisy audience. I suggested to Al that the next time he toured Scandinavia he should come to Uppsala Musikforum, my club in Uppsala. Early in the spring 1973, Al’s manager contacted me and said that Al wanted to come and play for just the travel expenses from Copenhagen. This, my best recording in the Shoebox, is a memory from a really inspired performance by Al in Uppsala! Enjoy!”

DimeTravel 366/Lagga shoebox archive tape #10 (first time circulated):

Thanks to the original taper, DIMER Lagga! Corrections welcome. While I’ve never heard the Heath Folk Club 1973 recording which circulates and has a somewhat similar setlist to this one, this is an extraordinary performance (and recording). It includes what may be only the second version to surface of Al covering Bob Dylan’s “Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues”, and, I believe, the only version to ever surface of Al performing Simon & Garfunkel’s “Blessed” from “Sounds Of Silence”.

Unfortunately “Blessed” ends early as Al breaks a string before the last verse, but he concludes it nicely nonetheless, reciting the rest of the lyrics. We get only two 1960s songs, one from his debut (Bedsitter Images) “Clifton In The Rain” and another, “In Brooklyn”, from the “Love Chronicles” album. The bulk of the show is a fine cross-section of early 1970s material, with four from “Zero She Flies” and three from “Orange”. There are three songs from the then unissued “Past, Present, and Future” album - which was actually recorded at Trident Studios in London the same month as this performance, tho’ it wouldn’t be released in the UK until Oct 1973 and there was a far longer wait in the USA, where it didn’t appear until May 1974 - some 14 months after being recorded.

One can imagine that was a source of real frustration for Al. In those days imports were much scarcer and it would have hardly made the same kind of splash as releasing them in both countries at the same time. Two of the new songs, “Warren Harding” and “Post World War Two Blues” are, in my opinion, far superior here - free from all the production and arrangements that went into the album versions. “Nostradamus” is cool to hear solo acoustic - the same vintage as the album, tho’ that song on the album really works well, just featuring bass and tablas along with the guitar which has some cool effects. Anyway, along with the recent ’60s BBC material that surfaced, we are fortunate to get some more glimpses of the genius of a fine musician in his prime. Listen, enjoy, show appreciation, share, give, spread peace. Yrs truly, Knees

THE GRATEFUL DEAD
‘71 Dead
Cleveland 1971 [no label, 3CD]

Live at the Taft Auditorium, Cleveland, Ohio; October 30, 1971. Very good WEBN-FM.

LMG, bcb-board.co.uk:

The box is made up of seven live shows from 1971 that were broadcast on various FM radio stations. Sound quality is very good, if falling below the level of the band’s official live output of recordings form 1971.

Whether or not this is a ‘bootleg’ or ‘pirate’ recording is debatable, with most of the evidence favouring the manufacturers. It is legal to sell recordings which have been broadcast - I am not sure if this is EU only, and/or there is a limit of years which must have passed since performance/broadcast. A quick internet search did not enlighten me.

Based on discussion elsewhere, it appears these are legitimate, but not official recordings. The manufacturer will have undertaken to pay necessary publishing fees, just as any other label would do. That’s not to say they will, of course, just as any other label might not do - EMI might end up (for example) not effectively paying royalties to BIll Nelson for his Bebop Deluxe recordings (look it up).

The recordings from this box were made for radio broadcast. Whether these recordings are taken directly from the radio and made at the time, or from a recording made earlier in the process, such as from the soundboard, I cannot say. My inexpert opinion is that they contain a mixture, some include radio announcements at the end (sometimes middle) of songs, others do not.

Sound quality strikes me as very good. There is no radio interference, crackling, whistle, fading out, etc that I associate with FM sourced recordings. They may well have been filtered and futzed with…

Performance is grateful dead - if you have read this far you know what that means. Lyrics get forgot, dithering between songs happens, songs get played lacklusterally. On the other hand, some of the performances here are fucking awesome - Disc 15 from New York in December is just magical - Dark Star Jam > Me & My Uncle > Dark Star Jam > Sitting On Top Of The World > Me & Bobby McGee > Big Railroad Blues > Mexicali Blues > Not Fade Away > Goin’ Down The Road Feelin’ Bad > Not Fade Away > Outro. All played with passion, pace, and a sense of fun. Or rapt transcendent concentration. Sometimes both at the same time.

In terms of lineup, every year in their 30-year history can be called one of ‘transition’ for the Grateful Dead, but 1971 was more so than others. One of the two drummers Mickey Hart left in February, then Pigpen experienced health problems leading to his temporary departure from touring in August 1971. His replacement was Keith Godchaux, whose wife Donna would also join the Dead the following year. So for the October and November shows here, the lineup was:

Jerry Garcia – lead guitar, vocals
Keith Godchaux – keyboards
Bill Kreutzmann – percussion
Phil Lesh – bass, vocals
Bob Weir – guitar, vocals

There are three December 1971 shows here, Pigpen was once again back, and I believe Donna is also featured on the New Year’s Eve lineup for the show at Winterland in this box.
