every day a delicious piece of music for your lunch break

Moondog – Moondog In Europe

Awesome stuff!

“He who didn’t know who didn’t know he didn’t know,
became the he who didn’t know who knew he didn’t know, and he became the he who knew who didn’t know he knew, who finally became the he who knew who knew he knew.”

I wish you all a pleasant weekend!!

Deft – Blue Jasmine (Teaser)

Another buy recommendation from my side is a release on project mooncircle. Deft brings with “blue jasmine” a stepper, beat and dnb release full of warm subtle dub. Totally looking forward to this one and hey, it comes on nice white vinyl (and includes a download code of course)

Have a preview here.

I wish you all a pleasant week!

Matthew Halsall – Tribute To Alice Coltrane

A bit late with a posting about this release, “When the world was one” (released in june this year) by matthew halsall and the gondwana orchestra. Not only is it a record full of the atmospheric, warm and yet so careful and concentrated jazz typical for Halsall’s records but it is also amazing to see how this artist keeps moving forward over the number of releases he created.



Interesting is also the focus in some pieces on Japanese influences, but maybe the biggest joy to me is the fact that this record was also released on vinyl!

So, ’nuff said. Go and get an ear or two and buy the record! :-)

Night with Jude – Kaidi Tatham @ jazzre:freshed

Beautiful collection of jazz pieces, released in 2012!

Jazz re:freshed has been alive and kicking for nine years now and during those nine years, we‘ve had the pleasure of hosting hundreds of amazing bands. When we started out we just did not have the equipment to document these shows sonically, only managing to capture the odd video clip for posterity. Thus some our most memorable musical moments are only etched in the memories of those that experienced them first hand.

A couple of years ago, we started to record the audio from the shows on very rudimentary recording devices (just for our own enjoyment). The audio quality was far from perfect, but where they fell short in audible clarity, they still managed to capture the vibe and energy of Jazz re:freshed.

For the years of support you’ve given us at Jazz re:freshed, we have decided to cobble together some of the better recorded tracks as a free gift to say thank you. These tracks capture not only the enthusiasm and passion for the music that the Jazz re:freshed patrons have, but also the richness and diversity of the music; yes, the recordings may be rough round the edges, but it kicks! You may have been at one these gigs and might even hear yourself cheering on the track ;o)

We have named the album “Prelude” because now that we have upgraded the sound system at the venue, we are now able to record bands at a much higher quality. Thus, this album is a prelude to the exquisitely recorded Jazz re:freshed Live Series… coming soon.

Love the artwork, love the music, ‘hell go and get it! :-)

Be good to yourself!
