Another LIST, a list of LIVE MUSIC HIGHLIGHTS, remarkable and surprising performances, performances I personally appreciated a lot all taken from seventeen festivals in Europe I attended through the past year. All these performances had something to tell, were fascinating and bold.
I have to add a few memorable live performances outside festivals:
The Necks at Café Oto in London
Rodrigo Amado/Joe McPhee/Kent Kessler/Chris Corsano at Amsterdam Bimhuis
De Beren Gieren at Amsterdam Bimhuis
Reports of these festivals and the highlight performances you can find in my archive at All About Jazz, at London Jazz News and the Estonian Art magazine Sirp.
In recent years live music has become the core thing, the essence of experiencing music. I listened less and differently to canned music in my private territory.
