Kaoru Abe - Solo Live At Gaya




I appreciate that if you don't get free-form jazz/sax then you are having a bad week on here. Ah well!

If you do, then you will already know that Kaoru Abe was the epitome. Between 1990 and 1991, DIW released 10 volumes of his Solo Live At Gaya sets. In 1995, they brought them all together as an 11 disc box set with the true bonus of "Kaoru Abe and Yoshisaburo Toyozumi - Duo Live At Gaya" that features two sessions recorded in 1977 and 1978 respectively.

It's all in 16bit flac and weighs in at around 2.7GB. Deocliciano, I hope you've finally got around to buying a new external drive!

Many, many, many Thanks,

greatly appreciate that one (or 11). Would have loved a couple of earlier entrances in FLAC as well, however larger the memory lane has to be broadened. Some things are just historical monuments that deserves the pedestal.

You are a first class hero of the highest calibre. Right up there with Abe-sama by my estimation. Thanks so much for this.

Wow, there is nothing not to love here. I don't have words that would do it justice. What an experience for the lucky folks who were there on these nights. Blessings and thanks for the post.
