Yeah, you read that post title right ... It was one of those dream bands I could never dream up myself. Something happened with the Russians in Aukyton - they couldn't get here. So, we got this amazing throw together ensemble instead. Someone needs to try to get them again - at Vision Fest or something.
This is definitely on my long list of favorite shows ever. It was a seated show with many of us standing in the back. Of course the few talkers in the room all managed to stand by me. The music was so good I was able to ignore the talkers for the most part.
They came out for an encore and did a Blues thing. Phenomenal!
John Medeski , Marc Ribot , William Parker and Andrew Cyrille
