JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2009 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Tim Posgate's Banjo Hockey - Rochester International Jazz Festival 2009

We were sort of lost on the second night because none of the night's sound files excited us. We read the blurbs in booklets but we make decisions with our ears. And we know that sometimes a band will sound great live while their recordings are lifeless so we soldiered on. We ran into Rick and Monica coming out of Tim Posgate's Banjo Hockey at the Xerox Auditorium. Monica warned us, "they aren't improvising". We gave it a shot. Indeed they were reading and then playing while we watched. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
