Day one of four in San Francisco in one of our homes away from home, the SF Jazz Center. Beep Box starts things off. Jay gets some long tones in at the start of the solo. GØ gets a solo from Bullock. Justin takes his time on keyboard over the bridge. Bob plays over the outro. JT subtly weaves into Tarova with a very different approach. The band follows suit and the tune goes to a new place. Shaun teases the melody. Maz takes the solo. Things go DC go-go. Justin blows over Kite, and the outro gets a very motific bass solo before settling into a groove. Bill sets up the very old 34 Klezma and takes the solo as well. Bullock brings things down on Young Stuff and takes his time. Shaun closes it out with a beautiful organ and Moog solo. Bob stretches and goes dissonant on What About Me? One of my favorite solos of his in recent memory. JT absolutely trashes on the vamp. A very special version of this tune.
