This was nice and a little different. It seemed a little more along the straight ahead lines for Ches Smith, but I think I'm kind of jaded, so it may not have been. They were all great. The guitar had my attention at first, but after a bit the violin/viola was really taking up a lot of my attention. He was so interesting. There was one tune where he was playing the viola like a guitar and it sounded similar to a bass. He had the funnest part in the fun song. He was also awesome with the gypsy-type stuff. Ches Smith was phenomenal. He did an incredible drum solo in the middle. The guitar was awesome.
