An excellent video collection of live performances of jazz and Brazilian music from Youtube user Pedro Mendes. Including such artists as Max Roach, Abbey Lincoln, Derek Bailey, Bill Evans, Charles Mingus, Sun Ra, Miles Davis and many, many more. Plus a host of Brazilian musicians I had never heard of before, but are quite excellent, such as Édison Machado, Dom Um Romão, Hermeto Pascoal, Elis Regina and Maria Bethania.

Wow—Bill Evans, Mal Waldron, Matthew Shipp, Derek Bailey, Anthony Braxton, Roscoe Mitchell (who I'm listening to right now)—what a treasure trove! Many thanks for the post.

Lots to see, and lately my musical tastes have been waxing Brazilian.

Wow, what a collection. Among all the others you name, I quickly spotted one of my favorite musical duos: Airto Moreira e Flora Purim, yay.

Also, several vintage Rahsaan Roland Kirk clips I will have to go post in the recent RRK thread - they could well be overlooked, listed under "Rahssand."

Thank you so much, Kattullus - if I could favorite this post multiple times, I would!

Hey, Kattullus, this is indeed a fine collection. And I'm gonna follow mjj's lead and cross-post here as well, with a link to my recent Hermeto Pascual post. The more music the merrier!

Bookmarked! What a great collection. Who has the time and dedication to do this? Well, this guy, whoever he is. ANY post with Rahsaan and Sun Ra has me on my knees.

Kattullus, this was a great find. Thanks for sharing. Thanks to everyone else for the additional links.

kuujjuarapik, your comment, whether intentional or not, cracked me the hell up. Now I can't stop thinking of waxing Brazilian.
