AKi TAKASE & JANA KOUBKOVÁ - Jazzperanto (Supraphon 1988)


This one-time collaboration of German-based Japanese pianist with Czech singer and improviser Jana Koubková was recorded during one of numerous visits of Aki Takase in the Czech Republic. Like many other international jazz meetings which was held in Prague during the 70's and 80's, it still remains unreleased on CD.

I think there was some mix-up with the link. It's a bootleg of a quartet with Elton Dean, Veryan Weston etc.
But thanks for that, too.

How about a raspidshre or zippyshare link this wants all kinds of other downloads thanks

The link is to something or other at the Vortex February 1997. Of course, that could be interesting, too ...

Oh, I am sorry for my late night confusion. Here is Jazzperanto in FLAC at Mega once more (works fine in Google Chrome), I am uploading it to RS now. Andy's Dean at Vortex and Rumours will be next.

Well ... my first experience with Mega is all about pushing Chrome down my throat ... or it doesn't download. No Firefox? Not happy

miloo2 said...

Here is RS LiNK. I was trying Mega beacuse uploading to RS, even with their Manager, took about twice more time for me - means 3 or more hours :-(

This whole Chrome issue is pretty annoying. I installed it just for downloading from Mega, still using Firefox otherweise.
But if Mega really proves to be a fast and reliable filehost, I'm more than willing to pay that small price. Let's hope it does.

Nice Record! Thanks Miloo.

Came through very fast with Mega - above 3 mbps. RS public account exhausted as of writing, so Mega might be a viable alternative to the deficiencies of RS.

Thanks for the Takase. I might have another one up my sleeve.

Thank you Milo! Discovered Jana Koubková only two weeks ago through a compilation from EM Records.
Concerning Mega:
It took ca.32 minutes for the download.
Let's see how Mega will change or not it's rules...
And Chrome isn't exactly my favourite browser - it takes much more RAM than Firefox - as I only have a tiny pc this is occaisonally very annoying. I have to stop all other work at the pc.
But this is probably only a problem for myself.
Many words short meaning - I still prefer RS.

Listening now and like this a lot - totally new to me, so thanks for the introduction!

Thank you for this - an interesting comparison to the album with Maria Joao.

the "new" MEGA SUX!!!

really, wtf should I have to d/l a new browser???

this ain't the answer . . .

miloo2 said...

As I am using Google Chrome mostly for longer time now, I am free of the boredom and quite satisfied with speed and functions of Mega.co.nz... Of course I understand you all going crazy with this Mega issue, but I think it is good to have alternative browser installed on PC for several reasons. Anyway, thanks for opinions and here is third DL option - uloz.to (aka save.it :-) - link is to Cz version, you can switch language via small flag in upper right.

I had about four the last time I counted (browsers that is) ...

miloo2 said...

Busy business, Kinabalu :-)
I am owing you thanks for help with unlocking rapidshare folders - it was a hard quiz for me even with your advice... won in the end!
