I *LOVE* the first set of this show — it’s in rotation often for me. Baby Goats is nice groove, and I love the Tequila & Chocolate sans Sco, which slides ever so nicely into Pocket Knife(!) — this tune just grabs me and I love it! VERY cool Improv to follow and solid Queen Bee to close.

Set II is solid and a good mix of tunes for this time — again, Hanuman with the trio ONLY is very cool … Oliver sits in, which is always fun for the guys it seems.

But just like the other 2 set gigs in this March run, the 1st set is where it’s at for me …

MARCH 2007
These March shows that start off 2007 are HOT HOT HOT!!! I love them all and have listened to them often — especially the loose and improvisation heavy first sets from these gigs. I do have to say that I’m just not a huge fan of Oliver sitting in … it’s fine, but I don’t find he *lifts* the band up in their performance, if you know what I mean (and these days I would *MUCH* rather find Chris hanging more with his brothers from other mothers than his bio-bro, but I digress) … nonetheless, some cool moments from him in that 2nd set and great playing from the band … still have the MSMW tunes floating around since at this point they’d recently played the Nov > Dec tour with Sco

And you know what would be REALLY cool? If the 3/8 gig in Atlanta surfaced:

We had an incomplete copy of Nashville (3/4) pop up a couple of years ago, so there’s always hope … but for now …

enjoy the grooves,
