JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2014 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

The Deciders at Rochester International Jazz Festival

On our way in to the church we overheard some of the people streaming out saying, "You couldn't get out of there fast enough either?" The Deciders were somehow reading charts yet loose and frantic. They were clearly having a great time on stage in contrast to most of the acts in the pristine Nordic venue. They started a tune with just bass, drums and sax and another with just the three horns making the most out of their arrangements. They played with sound. Nothing was precious. They turned the church over a few times during their avant garde set.
