Positive Catastrophe @ Jazz Gallery 5/8/09

This is Taylor Ho Bynum's new project. It is awesome, just awesome. I'm looking forward to listening to the CD. I thought the erhu added a lot. There was one girl who played the trombone and flugelbone, which looks like a giant flugelhorn. It's interesting that there are 3 flugelhorns in total, if you count the bone.

The erhu added a lot. It sounded so good with the rest and on the solos. There was plenty of featuring of various instruments. It was awesome and lively and new and I got to dance. I hope they do this a lot. I want to see it again.
