The concert was awesome. This picture can’t really do them justice, especially with the bad backlighting, so I’m hoping that David’s pictures came out better with the good camera. This time in addition to their usual sort of repertoire, they played one original piece by trumpeter Bobby Thorpe, a compostion on September 11th. It was a really accomplished and moving piece; you can hear influences from the age of Baroque to the age of Jazz.
They report they’ll have a new CD out soon – I was urging them to see if their new management can get them up on Amazon. They’re playing on a CD that’s available through Borders, but only on a few tracks. Their other CDs are available for download via MP3.com, though I own them already from when they came before. I’m hoping they’ll get their whole catalog on Amazon eventually.
