Night three at the SF Jazz Center. Things ease in slowly with Kite. Jay finds a note he likes and sticks with it. Shaun takes the outro on organ and cooks at an almost inaudible volume. Whitecap is slow and swinging. Bullock takes the solo. He and JT are left alone for a while. JT brings in Grown Folks. Bill takes the first solo, moving between different sounds. Bob plays over the outro. Young Stuff gets a solo from Maz. Justin takes the outro solo on keyboard and grooves. Nate sets up Tio Macaco. He keeps the solo short and sweet. Shaun brings down the house with Sleeper. Magda joins the crew for her arrangement of Gonzaga’s Vem Morena. The band closes out with a very succinct version of Shofukan, with a trumpet solo from Justin.
