Pete Robbins Silent Z @ Cornelia St 2/1/09

I'm glad I finally made it to this. The music was great and it was the last time Tyshawn Sorey would be playing in this project. He's scaling back on his sideman projects to spend more time composing and on his own projects. It should be interesting.

The show was great. It was a 1 hour set. Everyone in it is excellent. I like a quintet with a sax, guitar, and piano. The music was also different and creative yet down-to-earth. Gamble was the only one with any pedals and effects. It added a surreal element at times. Pete was great on alto. It was on the frenetic side and very interesting.
