Blue Note NY Sharing Archived Concerts

28 posts in this topic

https://www.patreon.com/bluenotenyc

Blue Note Jazz Clubs are currently closed as a result of Covid-19 and in keeping with the local, state and federal mandates.

We’ve been spending our time sorting through our archives & we are excited to share these historic moments in jazz at the Blue Note. Experience our favorite memories from concert performances, photos, interviews & more!

New content will be added daily and the archive will remain open for a short period of time.

Proceeds generated will help sustain Blue Note New York while we are closed. Your support will ensure that we will reopen and continue to present the biggest names in jazz!
 

$10 a month, for at least daily postings of archived concerts. Four months only.  The page has Ray Brown with Stanley Turrentine available in full right now and you can see the other concerts posted so far. Pretty cool but if I sign up they better deliver at least a Ray Brown Trio with Gene or Gene Harris Quartet.

Well I jumped on this, the Clark Terry w Wess and Heath is just one tune but Jon Hendricks, Max Roach and Elvin are each full sets, 1 hour or a little longer. The Elvin band is Carlos McKinney, Cecil McBee, Robin Eubanks and Sonny Fortune. Not sure on Max - two trumpets, a trombone and a tuba?

And by joining, I get to message the Blue Note so I've already put in my plea for a Gene Harris.  or three.  :g

Any idea what year the Jon Hendricks is from?

Dan beat me to posting about this.  I've seen Roy Haynes several times at the Blue Note and had plans to see him last month.  I hope that the club survives and that Roy plays there again.

Man, that Ray Brown show is smokin'.  Geoff Keezer, Karriem Riggins and Stanley Turrentine?!?!  That was worth my $10 right there.  This is a pretty exciting project.  I'll be listening to Elvin next.

No it doesn't say but I posted the question to them I am sure we'll get an answer soon.

 

And - great news for the former GHF - I got a reply that they have at least one Gene Harris set in audio, which awaits delivery of a DAT to transfer and he promises to upload. He says the videos weren't organized that well when they started this project. But Gene was popular with them so he's going to keep looking. :)

It's a shame that they haven't released more recordings on their (defunct or dormant) Half Note imprint or elsewhere.  Maybe Zev Feldman could make it happen.

Thanks for that. I saw one of his shows at the BN a couple of years before that. Part of a great double-bill with JJ Johnson.

I took a page out of Dan's GHF and messaged them to request some Roy Haynes.  They said they'd find some. :)

The Ray Brown one with Stanley Turrentine was nice.

They have been posting some great stuff.  I'm listening to a Roy Hargrove sextet with Larry Willis now.  They posted Von Freeman's 75th birthday gig today, which was a surprising one.  I'll be checking that out tomorrow.

This is a nice Sonny gig.  The first time I saw Sonny, it was the same band except with guitar (Bobby Broom) instead of piano and Willie Jones III on drums.  Kamati Dinizulu sadly passed away a few years ago.

I believe I may have been at this show. I recall seeing the two at the Blue Note in the late 90's.

Every time I get the email notification, if the concert interests me I am going to verify if its a full set or just a song or two.  I do hope and expect full shows though they haven't done that every time.

Plus, the quality isn't all that great. Very grainy. The Sonny Rollins concert from B.B. King's has a lot of frames freezing. I though it was my internet, but I watched it additional times with the same issues.

I'm listening to the show they posted today, which is the Russell Malone Quartet with Robert Glasper(!), Richie Goods and Byron Landham.  I never knew that Glasper worked with Malone.  Goods is also on yesterday's concert by the Mark Whitfield Quartet (w/ Peter Delano and Donald Edwards).

Today's post is a Hilton Ruiz set.  :wub:

Can someone skip to 30:20 of the Ray Berretto set and decipher who the bassist is?  It sounds like Andy Guila but I can't find any bassist by that name.  The other members of the group are Adam Kolker, John Bailey, John Di Martino and Vince Cherico.  It is a nice set.  I wish that I could have caught Barretto in person.

Is anyone still paying for this total bullshit? I just realized its nearly a week since the last post. And looking back, its July 28 and there are 14 days in July without anything new 50% assuming nothing shows up today.

I am ready to dispute all charges with Amex for failure to perform to their contractual obligation.

I canceled today.  I'll keep an eye on their future posts and I'll renew next month if they post some things I must hear.  I've heard enough each month to make it easily worth my $10, but I am disappointed that they have dropped the ball.
