Yes, the 1969 session has since been released. But there was a 1964 session listed in advance that never turned up (see post #37).

Not sure if it's been mentioned on the board or not, but there's a new posting of the Cecil Taylor Quintet at the 1965 festival -- with Bill Barron, Jimmy Lyons, Henry Grimes, Andrew Cyrille. Three tunes: "Steps," "Unit Structures," "Tales (8 Whisps)" Total of nearly 50 minutes. Just listening to the opening of "Steps" and it's pretty incredible.

Bill Barron and Jimmy Lyons? Together? w/Grimes & Cyrille? Live?

I've glanced at what's available & found it intersesting, but not really compelling enough to pay for. Not these days.

But this?

FLAC, and in a hurry!

Thank you very much for the heads up on this Cecil Taylor concert. It is truly astounding, an instant classic!

Just listening to that on my phone and wondering who the tenor player was. (Most sets have a long write-up giving personnel and context but I couldn't find it for this one.)

Any idea how many hours a non-member can listen to a month before he is cut off?

Thanks Jim. That's plenty for me for now.

I've just finished listening to the Sonny Rollins New Paultz concert. After that, I've no desire to hear more!

last night I purchased their Teddy Wilson gig at the Great American Music Hall from 1977.. Figured for $7 it was a good way to determine whether I might be interested in the Storyville box.... :unsure: :unsure: :unsure: :unsure:

After listening to it... I'll pass.... :beee: :beee: :beee:

More concerts released:

Newport Jazz Festival 1955

Teddi King

*Woody Herman & Erroll Garner

Newport Jazz Festival 1972

Freddie Hubbard Quintet

Oscar Peterson

Newport Jazz Festival 1973

Benny Goodman Quartet

Donny Hathaway

Herbie Mann Group

Ruby Braff-George Barnes Quartet

*This concert has been removed, but not before someone had commented that Woody Herman and Erroll Garner sounded remarkably like Paul Desmond and Dave Brubeck...

The Benny Goodman concert reunites the original quartet for what must have been the last time. Gene Krupa was very ill and would die just a few months later. An eyewitness account relates that Krupa fell over his drumset when Hampton patted him on his back at the end of the concert, and he had to be helped up.

Did anyone manage to record the 1955 Herman/Garner session before it was removed? If so, please contact me, either by PM or email hershia@cfl.rr.com. Thanx, Dan.

Not to mention a Junior Mance and a Kenny Burrell from the same year, and recently a Hampton Hawes of similar vintage got posted but I don't think anyone noted it here.
