JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2016 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Kent Sangster Obsessions Octect at Rochester International Jazz Festival

The Kent Sangster Obsessions Octet sounded a lot more cinematic and exotic on the recordings we checked out before we got here. In person they sounded more like Chuck Mangione. Their instrumentation, piano, three violins, cello, bass, drums and the leader on all manner of horns (a wind controller is hardly ever a good idea) could have gone anywhere.
