Hi Bacoso.. I was just reading the comments of Devil's Jazz Pit and noticed your curiosity about Jabberloop. Arnaud just posted the link under International Jazz on call it anything.

Just thought you would like to know :)

I'm also keeping an eye for http://www.myspace.com/jazpresso

and the last album of quasimode

Thanks for the education


Sergio said...

Thanks for another Mighty Burner album, his Muse sessions was a kind of "back to the roots" after all those Mercury disco/fusion oriented LPs.

Pekis said...

Hello Bacoso,

His sound & groove is so POWERFUL ...

Thanks for the great Charles Earland post Bacoso, much appreciated.

I am assuming from comments here that you are looking for Jabberloop and Quasimode (latest) LPs. Here are a couple of links for you to download them, both mp3 @ 192 kbps, but ripped from CD so quality should be good enough. As the titles are still in print, I will leave the links for a short time for download and remove after a few days.

Quasimode - The Land Of Freedom


Jabberloop - And Infinite Jazz

Makuma...just checked the Quasimode link and I can access it, it is still OK as far as I can see.

Bacoso - are you OK for the Jaz'presso too ? If you need it then let me know and I'l upload for you.


bacoso said...

vichakani-yes yes yes please I would LOVE a rip of the Jaz'presso !!!!Thanks-had never heard of them before you mentioned it.

Vichakani said...

No problem Bacoso, the least I can do in return for all the wonderful gifts that you have offered us.

Here is the link for Jaz'presso http://rapidshare.com/files/68714281/J_P_DOTJP.rar

Enjoy :-)

bacoso said...

makuma said...

Really apreciate

Late to the party (again), but thanks a lot for another wonderful post! "Murilley" is great and fun, but I like the other tracks even more, especially "Organic Blues". The playing throughout this album is so raw and direct, not perfect, but soulful.

One has to ask why this has not been reissued (as many other perls you have posted), but hey, with a quality rip like yours who needs a CD! :-)

"Murilley" BTW appears on Vol.5 of Irma's (excellent IMO) "Groovy" compilation series. So the master tapes are out there. With unreleased, groovy tracks...

MissT said...

Thankyou so much for posting this up! I loved 'Murilley', but by damn I love the LP now!
Great, no, amazing blog!
I'll add you to my links!
