The most experimental set of the run so far. Everything gets stretched. Nate starts the set off with a percussion intro to Semente. Maz comes out strong. Bob creates a beautiful segue into Flood. Justin takes a keyboard solo. JT swings for a second. Shaun jumps into the conversation on the outro. Things ping-pong around the stage. The vamp stretches. The band reprises and simmers. Sharktank is sloppy and fun. Bob has a… memorable moment. He takes the solo and redeems himself. Bill takes his time setting up Ready Wednesday on Rhodes. The solo section hits a serious groove. Jay blows over the top and the horn section joins in. What About Me? gets a tour of musical styles during Bullock’s tenor solo. JT destroys the outro. Magda joins for the encore of Amour T’es La? Really fun, loose set. Lots of freedom.
