A high-spirited period for Mr. Woods, and an impeccable series posted by Mr. Onxidlib. Thank you!

Thank you very much for this gem, I was waiting for this along time.
Unfortunatley "track11-intoduction" and "track12-Dance of the Dum-Dums" are missing

onxidlib said...

I will fix it tomorrow - and delete the link for now...

Andy said...

Thanks for more of this great series onx. Track labelled 6 also contains 7 and 8. Then things are thrown out of sync.. so you have 11 and 12 labelled in both sessions. Hope that makes sense.

Thank you black.saint and Andy for your attention.

Here's a new link - I've re-ripped the original CD-r and tagged the tracks.

Thank you so much, from now on my Kleinschuster Collection is complete.

onxidlib said...

Hi black.saint,
do you some I haven't posted yet?

Although I will post several more from Kleinschuster I am interested in others.
With and without guests.

I know there are at least 40+ bootlegs available - I have about 15 ot so of them.

JD said...

I was also waiting for this one, onxi! Committed the Jordan double bill to CD and played it to death, but there's been so much good music around lately that I haven't had time to give my undivided attention to all the others (or finish the artworks!) Thanks for posting this series!

Scraps said...

Wow -- forty! I mean -- Kleinschuster is interesting, intriguing. But forty-plus bootlegs from him? Wow.

I so wish that Henry Threadgill had forty bootlegs. Especially his Sextett and his Very Very Circus.... but any of his, I only have like twelve or so bootlegs.... I could listen to Threadgill bootlegs, one a day for the rest of my life, if I could. Kleinschuster must have a dedicated fanbase (or just one, it only takes one dedicated fan, I guess).

onxidlib said...

Hi Scraps - Kleinschuster was the head of the Jazz departement for several at Austria's public radio. He and his diverse groups (mostly the sextet [also Art Farmer was living close by]) did a lot of radio-productions and they were all broadcasted.
So it only needs a (more or less) dedicated fan with a reel-to-reel and "in-no-time" you have 40 bootlegs (and more).
Also I'm quite sure that several of them were obtained (or so) directly from the archives years later.
BTW - I know someone who has at least 170 Threadgill boots from 1977 - 2008.
From Air to Zooid.

Scraps said...

My god. Wow.
