Drew Gress Quartet - Live Recording (about 2001, in London I think) ,lame


boromir said"I found a CD in a drawer that I'd burnt years ago. It was unlabelled, so I had to play it to find out what it was. It turned out to be a radio broadcast from around 2001, I think, Drew Gress Quartet. "



Drew Gress Quartet - Live Recording (about 2001, in London I think)

Drew Gress: bassTim Berne: alto saxCraig Taborn: pianoTom Rainey: drumshttp://rapidshare.com/files/40014590/DGress.rar.html FM broadcast ripped at 224kbps. About 1 hrs playing time, split into 2 untitled tracks. I don't know very much about Gress, but he seems to have played all over the place, including in Tim Berne's band, so perhaps this concert was Berne repaying the complement.


The weather's dried up a bit, but more rain is expected tomorrow. Low lying areas are still under threat as the rivers fill up off the hills.

read an article about drew gress' 7 black butterflys album, (a good one)

Very good ! Thanks Boromir. It sounds like a first class audience recording. I had a bit of discussion on the repertoire tonight, with a friend who is more connaisserur on Berne's compositions than I am. He thinks the first piece is Jalapeño Diplomacy...I can't confirm that, but I'll try to get more info...

I suspect this is from the gig reviewed here:
http://music.guardian.co.uk/jazz/johnfordham/story/0,,1916478,00.html

which would make it 2002. It might not be, but I can't find a record of the quartet having come over the year before...
