June 2018 Highlights coming soon!
On Kamasi Washington's "Change of the Guard," an explosive tenor solo from Eli Zukor-Zimmermann sets the tone. Next is Wayne Shorter's "Beauty and the Beast" (2:11), where Eli takes another extended solo, along with Bruce Acosta on guitar and Leighton Tuenge on flugelhorn. The simple melody of "Everything in its Right Place" by Radiohead (9:03) leaves plenty of room for Jon Butler on electric bass and myself on drums. We finish the evening with the mixed-meter "Song for Bilbao" by Pat Metheny (12:16). Leighton's trumpet soars right out of the gate, Bruce shines on a guitar feature, and I bring it home with a solo break.
