This was a particularly good show in that it featured a nice mix of music. I also played a surprising amount of short tunes; one set consisted of five pieces and I don't think I've played five-in-a-row for months, maybe longer. My favourites this week include the bass tunes "Big Phil" by Henri Texier and "Trane's medley" by the Moutin Reunion Quartet; "The burning bush" by Gilad Atzmon; "Absorbed" by the Gerry Hebert Quartet; "Bachafillen" by the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra; and "Steamed juicy little bun" by Kaki King (which works very well played in a jazz context).
