john stevens- freebop 1982 affinity lame 320kbs vinyl rip

heres one that was , kindly left in the comments to boromir's post of a broadcast by the same band. this is brought to us by kinablu, many thanks(hope you dont mind us posting this, it deserves greater exposure)

i havent heard a great deal of stevens in this much more jazz orientated context, the few i have heard have been wonderful.

this one is particularly good, a vinyl in stunningly good sound , of kinablus lovingly preserved vinyl.
John Stevens: FreebopAFF 101Recorded live at the South Hill Park Arts Centre, Bracknell Jazz Festival, July 3, 1982
Personnel:Gordon Beck-piano
Jon Corbett-trumpet
Pete King-alto
Paul Rutherford-trombone
Jeff Clyne-bass
John Stevens-drums
Track listing:Side One:1. Blue Line2. Rhythm Is3. Take CareSide Two:1. Okko2. Kook

Kinablu says” It's a hybrid of sorts which really works, imho. Particularly enjoyed the interplay of Peter King and Gordon Beck. Really a bit of a showcase for King on this date. And proves that John Stevens did a whole more than the pure improv of SME (which I find myself appreciating as much, if not more).

Terrific post. Thanks again kinablu.

Be my guest. I've got more John Stevens OOP vinyl, but one thing at a time, eh?

Lovely stuff, thank you.

Would it be uncivil of me to again urge you to switch on your RSS feed in Blogger? :-)

oh yes, I wouldn't mind if I can be briefed on the technicalities. Over the next couple I'm going to be pretty busy and mostly out of the country, but perhaps we can talk in a couple of weeks' time?

Any email I can use?

sotise said...

you can contact me via this email

i dont know how the others feel, but i have no intention of switching the rss on.
why not save the sight through favourites?

but but but.. your RSS used to be on, at least according to Lucky at Cut*Out.

I have got the site saved, but its much easier for readers to stick the feed in a feed-reader and be notified of new content.

thanks again for this one too; I did see it previously but have only just felt the strong need to have this music!
