[band in the park]* - Dervish Dance
* - I don't know what they're actually called.
Just got back from a walk in the park right outside my house, where they've been having jazz bands play live almost daily. Today's was very different from others though, since they relied heavily on Eastern motifs in their sound.
I stayed for about 3 songs - mind you, they went on for 20 minutes or more each. This one struck me as the more diverse, defined one. The guitarist laid down some very good work - he seems to be the main source of their eastern vibe, and the sax and clarinet players were finally on even footing with the power trio, and the drummer played a kickass solo towards the later part. Very good stuff, now searching for who these guys actually were.
Then they played a jazzed-up take on a Macedonian song, and I thought it was hilarious. Very well-coordinated, odd-meter stuff.
