Jazz Middelheim was (and still is) the festival to attend in August.
As for BoB, what can I say? One of greatest "free" big bands of its time. Thanks for this beautiful and cooking post.

I might have this one, but I'm taking no chances, so thanks in any case!

At this point, Harry Beckett was the only one left of the original line-up, save the leader, of course. Thomas Dyani, son of Johnny Dyani?

> Thomas Dyani, son of Johnny Dyani?

Johnny's stepson, born in Sweden

Kinabalu, I only did main post for what mew23 posted before Christmas in Contributions, using his link. Anyway, may I remind you about posting District Six - Free To Be? And one more album from the same area comes to my mind, first Dreamtime - Bunny Up, anybody have it?

h-a-b - thanks for clarification about Dyani. At least one more family member in this version of BoB.

This one?


miloo2 said...

To Be Free - yes, the one with Chris McGregor.

Hi Milos
I've heard people talking about this live broadcast but didn't heard it until your re-post. it is a really great concert perhaps more quiet than the early b.o.b but equally interesting. Thank for the post
