Welcome To My Blog

Thanks for checking the blog out... Hope it offers something a bit different every now & again. Though I come from a pseudo - Mod background (Soul & Ska in particular), I have a diverse taste in music & hope my varied posts will reflect this.

Cheers Skamanc .... I'm not after your undying gratitude, but please leave your thoughts, comments & opinions on the posts & content. I regularly up- & download material, plus buy and trade items. As such, if I have inadvertently "trodden on anyone's toes" in posting anything then please let me know & accept my apologies. Also please support the artists involved & remember that the blog is merely a pointer toward these various downloads, which are stored elsewhere. Legally, any downloads should not be retained for more than a week. So now I've told you the legal bit !

Great live material from the Davis Quintet in late 1969, shortly before Bitches Brew was released. Thie quintet includes various sidemen from the recording sessions (see previous Davis posts), including Chick Corea (whom I've had the great privilege of seeing live twice) and Jack de Johnette. The various set lists include jazz standards as well as material from the forthcoming Bitches Brew - essential material from a fantastic outfit...
