Our first show of the tour as well as our first performance in Perú. A beautiful crowd from the very beginning. Thing of Gold as a rare opener. Maz solos on flugelhorn and Shaun phrases over the back half on Moog. Grown Folks is slow and funky. Bill gets colorful with the harmony on the first solo. Bob plays over the outro. Semente gets a trumpet solo from Justin and melds into Whitecap. JT and Bullock get into some stuff on the solo section. Palermo has a nice vibe. Bob rips the solo section apart and Marcelo tests the audience’s groove over the outro. Justin and JT create some heavy grooves on What About Me? before JT’s solo on the vamp. Maz takes things out on Shofukan. The outro gets stretched while JT and Marcelo ping-pong. Lingus closes out the night with one of my favorite Shaun Martin solos ever. A great start to the trip.
