Mago @ Japan Benefit, Brooklyn Bowl 5/24/11

Finally!  I keep missing opportunities to see them, which are few and far between.  It's Medeski Martin duo an it is fantastic.  They are both so incredible!  It appeared to be all improvised, which makes sense since it's their forte.  I thinking they would have played a continuous piece, but the crowd cheered at some point, signaling a pause to end a piece before starting the 2nd.  For the 3rd and final piece, they invited Mike Rivard to join them on electric bass.  It was an incredible set about 40/45 min long.
