I saw this at The Stone once before. I like having it in this slightly larger space even though the sound isn't that great. It's good enough. It's an excellent ensemble and they all shine. Each artist brings a lot to the music. They all have unique styles that that work very well together. It is pure genius to put them together and the compositions are brilliant.
I loved watching Ches play. He was behind and a little above the others which made watching him even more fun. Mary and Andrea both caught me in many moments. Tony was as awesome as always.
I would like to see them at Roulette sometime.
