JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2007 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

In The Country

The church was packed on Thursday so we stood in the back of the balcony and I grabbed this blurry photo. The drummer covered the set with towels to dampen the clean tone of this beautifully tuned set from the previous nights. It suited their rock tinged sound of flowing, piano led pieces that slowly built in intensity to reach crescendos. They covered David Bowie's "Ashes To Ashes" and all three players chanted "Everyone's Going To Die. Cheer Up." on the next piece. It was not at all as dreary as it sounds. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
