      1. Indeed…I told them aftewards (the Bad Plus) ,”as if the coolness quotient couldn’t go any highter, you played a tribute to Paul Motian in his home state!!” It was so awesome…except for the trad jazz guy next to me who complained and left right before the only “trad” sounding song of the set, “no mo’ ” !!! His loss!

  1. THANK YOU !!!!! I WAS THERE!!!! 2nd Row from the front!!! I got to talk to the bass and drummer both before and aftterwards…great guys, totally about the music, gracious in answering questions…seeing them with Frisell was the height of Festival weekend for me! NPR had this for listening only, so to get it as a download is fantastic!!!!!!!
