Review by westbrook

westbrook The SBD source has pretty good sound quality, but there are cuts in Ya Mar, Fee, and GTBT. This show contains some humorous banter. Golgi Apparatus is delayed because Fish has to hit a spliff before they can start, as noted by Trey. Before Ya Mar, Trey talks about transporting the audience to the Bahamas and tells the crowd to imagine that they are in a pool drinking rum. On to the music. Golgi is good. The composed part of YEM has a few problems, but I thought the jam was pretty good. Trey really rips in this one. The portion of Ya Mar that is on the recording is fine. Fluffhead and Almuni> LTJP> Alumni sounded good. It sounds to me like Page may be playing the random note signal/Entrance of the Gladiators lick around at about 2:35 in Donna Lee, but I may be hearing things. Fee is Fee and Antelope is pretty damn good. Fishman has some trouble at first on his vacuum solo in I Didn't Know, but he eventually gets it going. He also describes the vacuum, noting that it's an old Electrolux 1956 model, is missing a wheel, and is light blue in color. Take the A Train features a rare Fishman drum solo. GTBT is decent, however part of it is missing. And once again, we have McGrupp with another lovely trombone solo from Fishman .
