What did I c and hear:<br><br>We were 2 l8 2 c half an hour of Michael Brecker solo, so we went to the roof terrace 2 c Jonas Gwangwa from South Africa. Real swinging jazz with African influences (inlcuding 3 African swinging fat ladies
). After that we went 2 c Mike Stern, really terrific, hes my favourite jazz guitarist, I bought his latest cd which he signed 4 me, he was even talkin' 2 the public this time.<br><br>After that we went t c James Brown in a hall with 8,000 other people, terrible, what a horror show! We ran away 2 listen 2 Michael Brecker (MB was this year the in residence artist) performing with the surprising Farmers Market. After this we went 2 c his brother Randy Brecker performing with Bob Evans and Hiram Bullock in the Staten Hall, another high lite of the day!
<br><br>Wow, what a day, after these bands we saw a few other swinging bands, but nuffin really spectacular anymore.<br><br>Lookin 4ward already 2 next year 8)[/quote]<br>Hey ZF, sounds great!<br><br>If you like Farmers Market, you will probably like Estradasphere.
