This is another great live show that I’ve been holding on to for years. Why not share it?! I just realized that this show also has a page at the Live Music Archive and it says that I was involved in uploading it, which I only vaguely remember. In keeping with looking back on the incredible Fog City Records lineup, here is Papa Mali Live at The Catacomb in San Francisco on 2001-07-08.

This is not a complete show and was recorded from a stream that was presented by Fog City’s Dan Prothero.

Tracklisting:

01. Talking
02. Sugarland
03. Sweet Potato Vine
04. Talking
05. Walk on Guilded Splinters
06. People Get Ready *
07. Feel Like Going Home

Notes

* w/ Chuck Prophet

This is not a complete show. I don’t know of any recordings of the full show. This was originally posted to the Web by Dan Prothero as a streaming REAL media file. It was captured from this streaming file and as such, may have a couple of very minor dropouts. While this is not a complete show, it is terrific! Great sound quality and absolutely solid playing. This is a solo performance by Papa Mali (with the exception of Chuck Prophet sitting in on one track), which seem hard to come by in the download world.

The Necks in Three Performances

The Necks are a piano jazz trio from Australia. Though it’s probably a bit misleading to let you think that they are filling smoking bars with jazz standards. “Avant-Jazz” might be a bit more appropriate. The Necks specialize in long-form improvisational pieces that blur the lines between jazz and minimalism.

As you might expect, they develop a theme and then deconstruct and recreate that theme. Their typical track is about an hour long. The Free Music Archive has made available three different radio appearances, which you can stream or download below.
