Zeena Parkins at Tonic February 1, 2006 – Lossless Download

July 22, 2007

Avante-harpist Zeena Parkins played a central role in the Matmos concert discussed below. She performed a full array of harp sounds, from the beautiful melodic acoustic harp to the powerful and violent cacophony of her electric harp.

The concert offered for download below was a trio of Zeena, keyboardist Jamie Saft, and drummer Bobby Previte. They performed at the now-defunct jazz club Tonic, and provided an hour of compelling experimental jazz.

Download complete performance in FLAC [HERE].

    Thanks for this . Seems to fail the MD5. Won’t decode due to flac errors.

    Oh well, that’s not good. I’m checking it out now. Will fix later if there is a problem.

    Well it appears that my server cut out before this could be completely uploaded. Save the 200MB you’ve already downloaded, I’ll upload the rest in a couple of hours when I get back to the computer that has this file. Sorry for the inconvenience, this will be fixed ASAP.

    Wow, this is such a nice surprise! ZP is a great improvisor, I’ve been following her career since the early 80’s with Skeleton Crew. I would love to hear more of your recordings of this nature.

    Another goodie from the Tonic! I have been playing Marco Benevento’s 3CD set that was recorded there in November 2006 a lot lately. If you are interested, you can read my review (two MP3s included).
