I head to Philadelphia with Jason Adasiewicz, Jeb Bishop, Pandelis Karayorgis, Nate McBride, Dave Rempis, Chad Taylor. United Airlines screws up our moring flight, so we don’t arrive until basically
soundcheck. Room sounds good, great to have a grand piano for the music.
Packed house (160), standing ovation and e…ncore; the band really plays beautifully, great individual solos and ensemble work, Don Cherry’s music really felt alive. And as I said, it was fantastic to play American music to an American audience, IN America.
