SAM RIVERS TUBA TRIO - "ESSENCE - THE HEAT AND WARMTH OF FREE JAZZ" (CIRCLE, 1976)




Finally a proper post of the complete concert (almost!) - THANK YOU GLMLR !
In the correct sequence and pitch-corrected - this is part I - IX > part X you'll find here

Part XI is still missing....as is a proper re-issue...!

IMPORTANT NOTE:

This rip is identical to the one which was first posted on Church Number Nine in early 2007, except in that this is now in flac, whereas the earlier post was in mp3. The same original wav files were used for each post.

Unfortunately, the three original LP's, as issued, reversed the entire sequence of the music as played, i.e. LP3 (sides 5 & 6) comprised the first set, LP2 (sides 3 & 4) comprised the second set, and LP1 (sides 1 & 2) comprised the third set.

This, I thought, was nonsense, so here (as on the earlier C#9 post) I have changed the sequence back to what the musicians originally played. Consequently, what is posted here is:

CD1 - the whole of the first set (LP sides 5 & 6), plus the first half of the second set (LP side 3)


CD2 - the second half of the second set (LP side 4), and the whole of the third set (LP sides 1 & 2).

I'd almost forgotten about these sets, but listening again I'm reminded what a great trio this was. Thanks so much for putting such time and care into posting these as accurately as possible!

Thank you so much for this wonderful Sam Rivers. Unfortunately, disk 1 won't unpack for me completely. I've tried twice with identical results. But I'm very grateful for any of this great session.

I'm experiencing the same troubles as the previous poster, strange... But thanks a lot for the effort anyway!

Hi everyone - great to see inconstant sol flourishing - and for the name to become highly relevant as the speed of neutrinos from Geneva to Italy is scrutinised! I still have the Church number 9 mp3 files, but thanks for making this great recording available in flac.
