This day featured a fairly interesting setlist with a number of Canadian performers and many first-time plays (some I've only played once e.g. Mose Allison; I'll have to play more Mose sometime soon). I also played several things from the CJSW library, which I hadn't delved into much before. I recall really digging Muhal Richard Abrams' "Ballad for old souls" and "Toads of the short forest" by Ed Palermo. If I remember correctly, the Ed Palermo Big Band has done two CDs of Frank Zappa tunes arranged for big band ("Toads..." originally appeared on the Mothers of Invention record Weasels ripped my flesh, a personal fave); I later played a great version of "Moggio".

Note: the Weather report album listed above (I played "N.Y.C." from this recording) is the 1982 album not the group's eponymous first recording from 1971.
