I am just devouring these Garbarek posts...great stuff from his most exciting period. While I really dig the stuff he did with Jarrett and some of the later 70s ECM stuff, these early performances are incredible. I recommend some of his commercially available stuff like Sart, Triptykon, Afric Pepperbird... I really like Dis as well, very dark stuff.

Thanks to impestif and sotise for bringing us these great examples of Garbarek's early work.

One is so used to Garbarek as the astringent Norse Sage that it's surprising to be reminded that he could blow. Thanks for the history lesson, guys!

--and thanks to inconstant sol in general for so many nice, nice posts. Those Joe Harriotts I just found complete my set, pretty much. Check out _Fire in His Soul_ by Alan Robertson, anyone who's into him.

Just found yor blog and these Garbarek shares, I have been diggin his Witchi-Tai-To album a long time and now it´s great to finally hear some of his live material. I saw that there´s a Jan Garbarek and Bobo Stenson trio live share also in your site, this looks very promising! THANKS!

Thomas said...

Hi, many thanks for your Blog in general. This post is great too 'cause it shows that Garbarek is a great musician. I never liked Garbarek's playing. Lots of my friends love him and toture me with his music. I really sort of hate him. I wonder how such a person appears on a blog with otherwise good and tasteful music. I give it a try and now I understand it's only the soft and smooth later work of him I execrate. This two live sessions I really love. I must hear the early work in the other posts. Thank you very much.

Check out Terje Rypdals free-jazz trio Min Bul on http://savagesaints.blogspot.com/2009/10/min-bul-1970.html.
Min Bul did a live-in-the-studio concert on Norwegian TV in 1970.
Rypdal was still using his Rickenbacker guitar, played with a violin bow, among other things.

I discovered Rypdal & Garbarek at the 'Sart' album, when I had to drive 100 miles to a record store that carried such oddities.

I got to see Rypdal once in 1972, on an ECM tour that also featured John Abercrombie and Colin Walcott. Terje played thru a tiny amp, mic'd (a common practice now but unique at the time). He had the biggest guitar sound I'd ever heard--then or now.

I'm very excited to hear these live recordings. Thank you so much!

Barron said...

Damn, these are fine! There is more audible guitar work by Rypdal in these two shows than on any five official releases.

Thanks again!

PLEEEEASE Re-Up the Jan Garbarek/Terje Rypdal at SOGN STUDENTBY in ex "Zippyshare" or "Mega".
This one DON't Work!

Being a Native Oslo-man spending a lot of time i the Sogn Studentby facilities in my youth, make this a very special thing to add into my Music-libary!

Thank You so Much for The Baden-Baden 1971 Freejazz- BONANZA!
Those links were exellent, and fast downloaded; so when the "Garbarek Live at Sogn 1969" turned out to be a dead link, was a bummer-GALORE!

@Oslonative, good to see your enthusiasm for early Garbarek. I can easily share that sentiment. I have found the files, also for Bremerhaven, so they should be up in a little while. Keep in mind that we have also posted "Til Vigdis", Garbarek's debut and a concert recording from the Moers festival with the Triptykon lineup, but I haven't checked whether the links are still operative. All the best from a compatriot in the west.

kinabalu said...

New links.

Oslo 1969:

Bremerhaven 1971:

These were originally posted as mp3s, but I found an alternative lossless source for Oslo 1969. The Bremerhaven 1971 is in mp3, as was the original post here.

I didn't check these out until after the links had died. While looking for another Garbarek release today I found myself back here and new links! I am looking forward to hearing these. This band was a killer! Many thanks.


TomP said...

Thanks for the new links, but sadly they do not work as A-Drive says it is associated with a private account. Can anybody help?

BTW, I posted an upgraded non-mp3 Bremerhaven 1971 0n Dime a while back, which is a combination of a recent digital broadcast and an FM source. It is still live here...


kinabalu said...

The thing is that I forgot to renew my subscription to the Adrive service which has resulted in my account and the files therein being in so-called maintenance mode which is, I guess, IT speak for temporarily inaccessible. The subscription has been renewed now so it should only be a matter of time before they are available again. If not, I'll post them elsewhere.

Of course, feel free to post your Bremerhaven upgrade here.

kinabalu said...

I lodged a complaint against the Adrive service provider about the situation and I can report back that the files are now accessible again.
