We were told in line that Flora wouldn't be there due to an illness in her family. While I always hate to hear any news like that, I was glad to be spared her singing, which is quite different.
It was a great set. Much more straight ahead than what I experienced a few years ago at Telluride Jazzfest. It was funkier and they had more band members at Telluride. I really enjoyed last night. We got a killer drum solo toward the end.
Kenny Werner also got me out. He was his usual greatness. The guitar and bass were pretty good as well.
I found this listing with lots of info when I was looking for the names of the band members this morning.
Airto Moreira with Toninho Horta, Kenny Werner and Mark Egan.
