– SHACK THOUGHTS –
Gotta love the mix of tunes found here and Bill Evans fits very nicely with the guys, which makes sense after the amount of time they’ve spent together now … very cool interplay … the slinking opening of Junkyard is fantastic, as is the Improv Intro to “Melodicaccordion Shuffle” — cool to hear them keeping that tune in rotation after its debut on the October acoustic tour. Hermeto’s is a wicked cool treat (I tracked out the opening since it’s a little more unusual than the “normal” opening … whatever that could mean, I guess – HA!)

NOTE: Tit For Tat is a Bill Evans tune and MMW played it on the tour they did with SoulBop in Europe during the summer of 2011. I’d found it labelled as “Rattletrap” on a YouTube video, (stupidly) presumed it was correct and used the title in the setlist for this show:

… well, the tune played that night was Tit For Tat as well — it’s a tune that Medeski guested on from Evans’ latest album, Dragonfly. Anyway, in case anyone wants to update their setlists …

enjoy the grooves,
dug
