Newport 1966 [no label, 1CD]

Newport Festival, Newport, RI; July 2, 1966. Very good audience recording.

Thanks to molloy for sharing the show at Dime.


Huge improvement over the original recording shared here on Dime and the bootleg sold by Freefactory/Domino. The ~15 Khz buzz during Welcome, Leo and the last minutes of My Favorite Things are now gone and the recording is a lot cleaner (especially in the high frequency department), less harsh to the ears and less compressed compared to the old one. Thanks to whoever took the time to upgrade this incredible performance.

Great improvement from the original tape, MFT is missing the initial ~15 minutes bass solo and
there are some little cuts and sound degradation here and there but the quality imho it’s A-/B+.
Terrific performance, the musicianship presented here is simply astounding. 10/10 concert.

No lineage given, I assume it would be:
Original tape > x
> CDr > x > TLH (SBE Fix, ffp & md5) > Tagging (Foobar2000)

  2. Thanks for this. Nice to find some unreleased material from someone still among the first four names in jazz music, especially 56 years after his passing. Coltrane took his art to near-religious fervor and expression, and basically put psalms to music.

  3. “Checking birth certificate and/or ensuring everyone has a routine physical before competing = egregious violation of personal dignity,” Gaines responded. “Forcing girls to undress in front of an intact and exposed male = NOT an egregious violation of personal dignity, but rather kind and inclusive.

  4. Everyone is prejudiced. Including you! Prejudices are useful, because they help you keep things simple. But they can also influence the way we behave towards certain people, and that can be dangerous. Fortunately, there is something you can do. Below, we describe the three steps you can take.

    The first and most important step in the fight against everyday prejudices is to recognise them, and to acknowledge that we are all affected by them. Everyone has definite ideas about certain groups of people that never apply to all members of that group. If you are, and remain, aware of this fact, you have already taken the biggest step.

    The second step is to try to make sure that your own prejudices do not determine your behaviour. Prejudice should never lead to exclusion or discrimination against others. Also, make sure that you do not spread your own prejudices.

    Step three: react! If someone around you hurts other people, insults entire groups, or uses prejudice to define them, react. Oppose them! React in your own circle of friends and acquaintances, respond on social media.
