    Really great news! I received the news about the festival’s program this morning and was about to post it here – just to find out you beat me. Anyway, I’m really looking forward to this special treat. I sure will be there!

    I got my tickets too (for the whole festival), and hope to be there. I hate travelling though, and will never fly – so it’ll take me a week I guess if I go by bus and train :). Anybody know the city, and know a

    My german is almost as bad as my english, but I think the following news tells that Robert Wyatt _will_ attend the Frankfurt events. http://www.az-web.de/sixcms/detail.php?template=az_detail&id=671127&_wo=News:Vermischtes.

    From the 39. Deutsches Jazzfestival Frankfurt 2008 website:
    Still, no news whether Robert will attend personally…

    No motto this year, but a myth:

    Robert Wyatt, founding member and ex-drummer of the Band ?

    Market Rasen, Dondestan! en Soupsongs, all playing from the Robert Wyatt heritage. The best we ever saw and heard and even Robert Wyatt was there to listen to the concerts and had all of us had a wonderful evening.
    Pictures and reviews will follow later on my site http://www.muziekgezien.blogspot.com.
    Max Nagl’s Market Rasen from Austria are a very good jazzgroup that use themes from RW songs and make it their own. Sometimes you recognise songs or part of a song, but their great anyway. They started of a bit nervous, with RW, their hero, in the audience, but they played a great set.
    Dondestan! with Michael Mantler were great too, they were the only band that also covered the Soft Machine and Matching mole era of RW. Beautiful version of O Caroline.
    Annie Whitehead’s Soupsongs were even better than one the Soupsongs Live cd’s, although the concert was way too short. Beutiful versions of Free Will and Testament with Jennifer Maidman singing, a lively improvisation on Dondestan, with Sylvain Kassap (from Dondestan!) joining in, and they ended the concert with Heeps of Sheep.
    Great concerts, great audience too. And one of the biggest/longest ovations I ever heard.

    Hi All,

    Pictures and reviews are now available on: http://www.muziekgezien.blogspot.com/
    Also made an incomplete video (first minute is missing) of Soupsongs Free Will & Testament. First time I made a video with my new camera. Turned out to be quite good, but the 4,5 minute clip is over 500 MB so I don’t know what to do with it.

    Peter, download this free and excellent video converting application, and use it to convert your video to FLV file (Flash Viseo).
    This will reduce the video size dramatically. You can then upload to youtube or send it over, and I’ll upload it here…
    ;)

    Thanks strongcomet. I did dowload and install and uploaded the result. Video quality is less than the orginal (size is about 10%), but it sounds as good.
    Asked Robert Wyatt and Anie Whitehead if it was ok to publish it, but without their emailadresses I had to send it to them

    just signed up to this forum this week. Now. I`m very eager to be able to listen to this concert.
    maybe somebody taped the broadcast at the time ?
    and maybe will sell me a registration on good old fashioned cassette tape ?
