– SHACK THOUGHTS – 10 YEARS AGO TODAY
If anyone recognizes the 5th track on disc 1, please speak up! It might just be a killer Improv, but wouldn’t surprise me if it is an actual tune.
I noted the Organ and Piano Intros to Shackman (aka After the Onsen) and What’d I Say, respectively, because they were long enough to warrant the noting, I thought — Shackman has that Organ Intro during this time. This set carries on with the same vibe as the previous two shows, with similar tunes but some alternates as well … playful Open Improv, and the Rowboat > Nocturne combo is a favourite of mine … Egbe Mi O should be played again!
enjoy the grooves,
