I had no idea who would be in the Trio, it was listed as "Stanton Moore Trio + Anders Osborne". I wasn't sure what that meant, but I like Brooklyn Bowl much more than Sullivan Hall, and it's been a while since I've seen STM or Anders. I got saturated with STM about 4 or 5 years back. It was a jazzfest where I saw Stanton's Trio, Quartet, and Quintet way too many times.
It was a 1 hour set with the Trio and the 2nd set was 1 song with the Trio and then Anders joined them. and Will Blades were the rest of the band, which was cool. I hadn't seen THAT variation of STM yet. It was good, but I would get a little bored at times. I definitely enjoyed each of them at various times, and it was fun, it just wasn't one of those blown away amazing shows.
Once Anders took the stage things took a turn. I'm so busy with work I could only stay for a couple of songs. It's been so long since I've seen Anders I was surprised. I forgot how good he can be. He rocked! The 2nd song was a little slow and a good time to make a break for it. I did a much better job of timing the train, I was on the platform a few min before 11 and it came within a minute.
