The original source for this track is an old cassette. That's likely the issue.

Avatar Fri. 8/16/19 9:42am Sem:

Good morning, Doug, and hello, all.
I found Morocco to be an entirely estatic experience, but this market was beyond describing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/16/19 9:43am Doug Schulkind:

Ahoy, Sem!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/16/19 9:44am Doug Schulkind:

Beyond words, yes. But here are some words to describe it:

For centuries, the Jemaa El Fna (Rendezvous of the Dead) has remained the stage for one of the most spectacular social forums on the planet. By day, this central square in the city of Marrakesh, one of Morocco's great imperial cities, fosters a kaleidoscope of entertainment for its local inhabitants; storytellers, acrobats, magicians and snake charmers all create intriguing displays of bewitching spectacle. As the sun sets, the evening grows frantic with the pulse of the crowd; it is then that the night musicians set up. Free from the restrictions and expectations of light entertainment for a tourist crowd, these musicians manifest ecstatic performances that animate the audience and players alike. The groups represented on this album; Troupe Majidi, Amal Saha, and Mustapha Mahjoub, are working and carrying the torch of their musical heroes nightly in the square. These songs come from the repertoire of Morocco's greatest musical exports: Nass El Ghiwane, Lemchaheb, Jil Jilala, Larssad, and many others from the Chaabi (Moroccan popular music) canon and are given a raw, emotional and fiery interpretation. Instruments are powered by car batteries and blown out through megaphone speakers. These recordings represent a rare opportunity to hear this music at such close proximity, taking in all the power and pa ssion of the performances. The raw fidelity captures an unflinching immersion of what is simply some of the greatest street music on earth.

By "working," I assume that means furiously scouring the interwebs for that newly found 1964 Coltrane recording slated for a September release.

The next track is an amazing live performance at a night club in Tangiers in 1958. The recording is crappy, with lots of tiny cut-outs of sound, but it's the only recording available. Amazing amazing amazing.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/16/19 10:44am Doug Schulkind:

NO! I was wrong. This was recorded at the studios of Radio Tangier International.

The lineup:
Idrees Sulieman (trumpet), Oscar Dennard (piano), Jamil Nasser (bass), Buster Smith (drums)

Sleep tight, ausmanx! (But not until after you cross the bridge.)

Circular breathing on trumpet. Intense.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/16/19 10:49am Doug Schulkind:

The pianist on this date, Oscar Dennard, is a bit of a mystery. His contemporaries held him in highest esteem, but he hardly ever appeared on record (this was not ever officially released).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/16/19 10:51am fleep:

Dennard www.jazzwax.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/16/19 10:57am Doug Schulkind:

Yes, fleep! That piece contains the most info I've found about him. I originally procured the "Legendary Oscar Dennard" record, but I found it had lots of little imperfections in the audio. When that "4 Amercian Jazzmen in Tangiers" disc came out, I snapped it up, but it, too, has the imperfections.
