JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2016 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Nacka Forum at Rochester International Jazz Festival

Nacka Forum opened with a rousing Sun Ra like unison horn number which quickly turned to an outside romp. And then they shifted gears for a few of the drummer's songs which were surprisingly pretty for a guy wearing shorts, a bright green Ninja Turtle t-shirt and a matching trucker hat with "Fred Anderson" written on it. Both were tunes off their new album, "We Are The World." The trumpet player did a conga drum solo and Jonas played both a clarinet and tenor sax at the same time. We loved this band at Kilbourn last night and they were just as good tonight.
