The Netherlands 1971 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Davenport Jazz Festival ‘71, Restaurant/Zaal Groenendaal, Doetinchem, The Netherlands; October 22, 1971. Very good to excellent FM broadcast.

Grammy-winning musician Yusef Lateef, a multi-instrumentalist known for fusing jazz and Eastern music, has died at 93 [on December 23, 2013]. Lateef played in bands with Dizzy Gillespie and Charles Mingus and gained a global following as one of the first to incorporate world music into jazz. In 1987 he won a Grammy for best new age performance for Little Symphony, on which he played all the instruments. Lateef had battled prostate cancer and died at his home in Shutesbury, Massachusetts. - BBC

Thanks to the original uploader and to Neetelbaers for keeping this show alive at Dime.

Neetelbaers noted:

This was seeded here before. For the reseed, I made some track length alterations in order to separate the broadcast introductions. Some additional info is added. I also adjusted the volume level balance between left and right channel using Audacity. Some pictures from this concert from the Erfgoedcentrum Achterhoek & Liemers archive in Doetinchem were added as well. Restaurant Groenendaal was located in the south-East of Doetinchem, next to a municipal/public open-air swimming pool facility. Both Restaurant and swimming pool are gone for about 25 years now and today the area acts as one of the town’s suburbs.

  3. hey bigo, thanks! i’ll get this in the morning.

    i’m not sure what restaurant is. the venue would be zaal groenendaal unless it’s in some mysterious restaurant or cafe that has no name. or it could have been that some of the festival was at the hall and some of it was at a restaurant. i have no idea, but it might be easier to leave restaurant off.

    thanks barth!

  8. darth did you get a piece of coal for Christmas again? So tell us, Scrooge Mcdarth, how does the meaning of “restaurant” differ between the USA and Holland? Which, by the way, is known as The Netherlands. I’ve been to restaurants in both countries, and didn’t see any major differences except for cuisine specific to the locale. I’ve seen bands in restaurants in both countries too. Please spin a Christmas fable for us, darth! After all, it ain’t rocket science!

  9. After a Google search (hampered by my lack of any Dutch), it appears that Groenendaal was an old airfield that was repurposed as a sports training facility and stadium. Perhaps there was a restaurant there with an attached performance space - “zaal” translates as something like “hall”.

    Side note - this very URL was included in the first page of search results for almost every query with a combination of the Dutch words in question.
