Jeff Beck - Live at Fiddler's Green Ampitheater, Greenwood Village, Colorado, USA, August 7, 2016 [FLAC]

Certainly a different flavor of Jeff Beck this time around with all of the vocal dominated music. Apparently, Jeff wants to be dissassociated as a "guitar-nerd".  Personally, I think he's getting a bit older and trying to rely more on his band and less as the main focal point for each song. All in all, a very entertaining show, but would have loved to have heard more of that classic "guitar-nerd" stuff. Hopefully, I got the new songs right on the set list. The recording came out pretty nice! Enjoy! (~the taper)

Egberto Gismonti, Jan Garbarek, Charlie Haden - "Magico" - Live at Funkhaus, Hannover, Germany, 1980-06-13 [FM][FLAC]

Here are 3 masters from 3 continents playing together and promoting the recordings they did for ECM back at this time. The recordings were called Magico and Folk Song and are well worth seeking out. A live 2cd set was released by ECM in 2012. That had been recorded in 1981 in Munich. It was called Carta de Amor, and labeled the ensemble as Magico. The material in this 1980 show comes from both the Magico and Folk Song releases.

Thanks to whoever recorded this, the trader who made it available to me, and the great musicians who performed this music. Please support these artists by purchasing their officially released material and by paying to see them live.

Kick The Cat - Live at Lion's Den, Chicago, Illinois, USA, 2005 [FLAC]

I received this a long time ago and I know I did some editing to make it flow better from track to track.  I may have remastered this also but it was so long ago I can't really be sure.  But I am certain that these guys are killer.  The irony is I used to live in Chicago but never heard of them when I was there.  Now I have moved away I wish I could go back and see them play live. Enjoy!  (~ barkndog)

Jean-Luc Ponty - Live at Bourbon Street, Sao Paulo, Brazil, 2014-06-10 [FLAC]

Finally got to watch a show of Jean-Luc Ponty after several times he visited Brazil. At first I was a little leery after verifying that  the current lineup of his band does not have a guitarist but frankly I do not know if was sorely missed. Baron Browne on bass and William Lecomte on keyboards left everyone flabbergasted. However, the luck again smiled at me. In the example of what happened exactly one month before in the show of Jeff Beck where he assembled a band exclusively for the concert he did in Sao Paulo with Vinnie Colaiuta, Tal Wilkenfeld and Jimmy Hall, JLP brought forth Rayford Griffin who is not following in the last shows of JLP. The result is that it provided the greatest drum solo I've ever watched live my life. And consider that I watch shows from the end of the decade 80. The only things I did not like is that it was a short show (just over seventy minutes) and the version of Round Midnight I considered bland. But the rest made up with leftovers. Enjoy!

Mahavishnu Orchestra - Le Grand Theatre De Quebec, Quebec City, QC, Canada, January 24, 1973 [SBD][2CD][FLAC]

The Mahavishnu Orchestra was a jazz-rock fusion group led by John McLaughlin, active during 1971–76 and again in 1984–87 after major line-up changes.

The band's original lineup featured "Mahavishnu" John McLaughlin on acoustic and electric guitars, with members Billy Cobham on drums, Rick Laird on bass guitar (although Tony Levin was the first person McLaughlin called to join the band), Jan Hammer on electric and acoustic piano and synthesizer, and Jerry Goodman on violin. This first incarnation of the ensemble was a multinational group: McLaughlin is from Yorkshire, England; Cobham from Panama; Hammer from Prague, Czechoslovakia; Goodman from Chicago, Illinois; and Laird from Dublin, Ireland. This group was considered an important pioneer in the jazz fusion movement. McLaughlin and Cobham met while performing and recording with Miles Davis during the Bitches Brew sessions. McLaughlin was also influenced in his conception of the band by his studies with Indian guru Sri Chinmoy, who encouraged him to take the name "Mahavishnu" which means "Divine compassion, power and justice." or simply "Great Vishnu", an aspect of Vishnu.

McLaughlin had particular ideas for the instrumentation of the group, in keeping with his highly original concept of genre-blending in composition. He particularly wanted a violinist as an integral contributor to its overall sound. As the group evolved, McLaughlin adopted what became his visual trademark — a double neck guitar (six-string and twelve-string) which allowed for a great degree of diversity in musical textures—and Hammer became one of the first to play a Minimoog synthesizer in an ensemble, which enabled him to add more sounds and solo more freely, alongside the guitar and the violin.

Their musical style was an original blend of genres: they combined the high-volume electrified rock sound that had been pioneered by Jimi Hendrix (whom McLaughlin had jammed with on his initial arrival in New York as part of the Tony Williams Lifetime), complex rhythms in unusual time signatures that reflected McLaughlin's interest in Indian classical music as well as funk, and harmonic influence from European classical music. The group's early music, represented on such albums as The Inner Mounting Flame (1971) and Birds of Fire (1973), was entirely instrumental; their later albums had songs which sometimes featured R&B or even gospel/hymn-styled vocals. In the aforementioned two albums, the group goes from an energetic fusion of upbeat genres (a representative example of which is the song "Vital Transformation") to very serene, chamber music-like tunes, such as "A Lotus On Irish Streams," a composition for acoustic guitar, piano and violin, and "Thousand Island Park," which drops the violin and incorporates double bass; or from low-key to extremely busy in a single piece, such as "Open Country Joy."
