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 drums with towels to dampen the clean tone of the beautifully tuned set from the previous night. It suited their rock tinged sound, slow piano pieces, most of which built in intensity to reach crescendos. They covered David Bowie's "Ashes To Ashes" and on the next tune all three players chanted "Everyone's Going To Die. Cheer Up." It was not at all as dreary as it sounds. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
