great clip!

i've heard more than a little criticism leveled at the yellowjackets over the past 20 years, some of it from folks whose knowledge far surpasses mine. or maybe it's an insistence on purism that surpasses mine. or some from column a, and some from column b.

regardless, i like that band a whole lot, and have for almost their entire run to date.

marc russo did his thing well, but i find them a more compelling band since bob mintzer joined in the early 90s. he's just got a much bigger bag of tricks to bring to the party as a composer, arranger, and player. love jimmy haslip's unorthodoxy, too.

great band, cool clip. thanks!

Very nice. I love the YJs. It was also very nice to see that this was when Will Kennedy was still with them, before they went farther downhill than when Marc Russo left. And the guitar So tasty. Too bad the guy on tenor missed the subtle harmonic movements that the guitarist nailed every time. That's probably what made it even more obvious. Poor saxman.

Anyway, Frank D, I never heard anyone playing alto, unless you mean alto, the Spanish word for "high", in which case I agree. The high notes were beautiful. :)
