– SHACK THOUGHTS –
FRIDAY AFTERNOON IN THE UNIVERSE (FAITU#37)
Big thanks again to Jeff Kennedy for taping and sharing the recordings with me to then share with all of you! THANKS, JEFF!
Maybe I’m biased, but I think this is my favourite pull … by a small margin … anyway, check this source out … and if you haven’t heard this show through one of the other sources, then download this and LISTEN!
Set II is once again incredible … the Layla Improv is beautiful and leads into a pumping jam … the section with Cornelius Boots is just really great — I kinda wish he’d been alone with the trio more … and Moe Jackson drives the bus? WTF? This is like back in ’05 when Dominic Placo (their driver at the time), came out and blew the trumpet with them … why are these guys just driving people around! HA! THEY ROCK! Hopefully they get to play more than just occasionally …
I kinda feel like that last Bus Driver Improv is familiar — like I wanted to start singing along with it when it got going, but couldn’t think of the words … but, I guess it’s probably just another kick ass improvisation …
Man, this was an INCREDIBLE tour!
enjoy the grooves,
