Bob hosts one of the festival after hours jam sessions. You can see the segment with Bob at this link. 13WHAM Jazz festival Preview.
Lisa and I attend the part of the festival and jam session Saturday night. We hope to take more shows this coming week, before we go on vacation.
One of the shows I'm sorry to miss is Bill Frisell and Thomas Morgan duet. So, I'll console myself with listen to Frisell on one of my Muse Day picks, John Zorn Naked City, which AllMusic reviews states, "performs his unpredictable originals, abstract versions of some movie themes...The stimulating music rewards repeated listenings by more open-minded listeners." Well, to put I lightly, the music on this CD is not for the faint of heart. It can be as brutal as the cover photo, and bizarre as the package artwork, but just a intriguing. I thought picking this up it would compliment the movie theme CD by Bob Sneider and John Locke I enjoyed so much. Naked City is harder to get into.
Here's the other cover.
I guess it was so nice they had to release it twice. In any case, the music is great. They played at the Little Theater Cafe, the same night the XRIJF started, so they are right the thick of things. So, if your in the Rochester area be sure to enjoy the festival.
