I had enough energy for one early set and this was it. No William Parker this time, but it was still awesome. The performance area is big enough that the musicians were able to form an arc with the horns and reeds on the left, the drumkit in the middle and then the upright bass and percussion/congas on the right. So, we could all see everything and it all felt good.
The music was awesome. It was a 1 hour set of greatness. Bill Cole starts out on the didgeridoo. He plays a lot of cool reeds and is fun to watch. There was also a French Horn player, and it's nice to have a French Horn sometimes. Ras Moshe was great on the tenor sax. I love Shayna Duhlburger on bass. The conga/percussion guy was awesome. The music was excellent.
