I had an inspiring Labor Day weekend at the Detroit Jazz Festival. The lineup this year was ridiculous, with awe-inspiring acts on all four days of the long weekend. Wayne and his quartet featuring Brian Blade being one of them. Many of my friends from NYC took the trip out, saying it was the strongest jazz festival anywhere in the world in 2012. And no charge. We're so lucky to have it, and can't wait for next year's already.
I heard that Wayne's group just killed it at the festival, wish I could have been there this year! I was hoping that some recordings would sneak on to youtube.
I constantly having arguments with myself about which album I love more, Speak No Evil or Night Dreamer. Endless inspiration and pleasure from both.
Wait a minute, just found some video! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdmIsecxwpk
