Sonny Rollins - Arnhem 1967

Sonny Rollins w/Ruud Jacobs & Han Bennink in 1967 - an effin' great recording! No more words needed, check it out here - yeah, right HERE ON THIS BLOG NOW! Check the comments for the links!

**********************************************************

So then, here's the great, GREAT concert from Sonny in Arnhem 1967. I tried doing some remastering but found the result not worthy enough, so what I seed here is just a fixed version (without duplications, one-channel-dropouts etc. - see notes for details), but with the same general sound as the previous re-seed, and in fact as the original seed I got it from.

This has been re-seeded by nocturnalnph a few days ago here, consider this an update for all the corrections, but as I said, not for sound:

***************************************************************************************

In short:

* sound is fair enough! *
* Sonny is effin' hotter than hot! *
* Bennink is smokin'! *
* bass is audible, too! *
* THIS IS A MUST HAVE! *

Notes:
- CD1#2 came as "Four - Don't Stop the Carnival", but it's mainly "Four" with Sonny quoting various other tunes in a free-flowing improvisation
- CD1#3 was followed by an incomplete version of CD2#1, the intro was longer on CD1#3, I spliced that onto CD2#1 and deleted the rest
- CD2#3 came as just "Three Little Words" - I am not sure if there are two or just one other tunes following or what they are.

Thank you!

Janet said...

Thanks for all the music! By the way, according to http://spotlight.radio6.nl/2008/05/30/ruud-jacobs-in-spotlight-2/, the correct date is May 3, 1967. It took a lot of digging to be sure!

ubu said...

xyodax said...

Wow what a fascinating find. I cant get the 2nd link to work...could you repost? The 1st works fine. Thanks so much in advance!

ubu said...

I think I'll rather re-up as FLAC later on...

Matt said...

Any chance you can re-up this as a .rar? It seems that the link is expired on Rapidshare.

Thanks so much. Can't wait to hear this!
