Last show of a 4-day, 6-show run at the SF Jazz Center (and the last of a 23-shows-in-23-days tour). Nate kicks off the show with an intro to Strawman in its first appearance this tour. Justin jousts with JT on keyboards. Bob, Maz, and Bullock trade. Gemini hits a groove during the middle vamp. Justin takes the solo on Fender Rhodes. Outlier shows up for the first time on the run. Bullock and JT go lots of places. The solo section flexes quite a bit. JT sets up Tarova and it gets a soul-jazz treatment. Maz gets left on his own in the solo section. Bill swings over the outro on Rhodes. Nate sets up Tio Macaco. Jay takes the lone solo. Nate and JT take it out. Lingus is slow and heavy. Shaun takes a percussion solo on Moog before bringing in the organ. The encore is a (very hyped, thanks to Shaun) version of Shofukan. Bob takes the solo for the first time. Shaun won’t let it go. A very loose, fun end to the tour.
