Here's the chat log from the show...

Hello! This is Vince and I'm about to go frontstage to introduce Jazz Live San Diego and Bobby Matos Sextet!

19:45 outlawv I'll be back after I kick off the show!

20:10 outlawv OK...back upstairs in the perch...picture from on top coming soon...the first tune written by violinist Daniel Weinstein was called Flunky...or Phlunky...must be something to do with Latin Funk!

20:12 outlawv Mark Weinstein wrote that last tune...which Bobby didn't name on the stage.

20:13 outlawv Tune 3 of the set, from Beautiful As The Moon...a yiddish tune...

20:18 outlawv great violin work by Daniel Weinstein...and a quote from something yiddish at the end too...

20:21 outlawv Oh...and that last tune was called "Beautiful As The Moon"

20:21 outlawv ...and now they are doing "Blue Monk" (I think that's the Monk tune we are listening too)...

20:24 outlawv Daniel sets down his violin and plays the trombone on this one. Bobby playing the sides of his timbales.

20:27 outlawv Nice mellow intro and kicking it up mid-tune!

20:30 outlawv Oh..."Monks Mood" was the tune...Bobby saw Monk tap dancing in front of the 5 Spot in NYC back in the day..

20:32 outlawv Mongo Parasas Matamor Mambo...not quite right...searching...that was Bobby dancing on stage that the crowd dug!

20:34 outlawv Nice solo by pianist Theo Sanders....

20:36 outlawv Tune: <no title> written by the sax player in the band, Pablo Calogero...

20:37 outlawv I think I'll ask Bobby about his early switch from Conga to Timbale AND about his playing on Jim Croce's "I Got A Name" album...for that San Diego Jazz (club) connection...that's coming up in 23 minutes....

20:39 outlawv AFter the sax solo, a little bit of muted trombone from Daniel. The band list is http://www.flickr.com/photos/vo/4747269517/

20:42 outlawv No intro on this tune...just sticks to kick it off!

20:43 outlawv OK...as host of the show, I always get a bit scared when the band runs through lots of short tunes...they have to play 1 1/2 hours straight, so I worry...We've had artists run out of tunes before the gig is done...we'll see!

20:49 outlawv Bobby tunes us in with the cosmic music from above...and lots of hours sitting on the piano composing...

20:49 outlawv Tune: Early Morning Song...that's when it came to him!

20:50 outlawv 10 minutes to Legal ID and Q&A...

20:53 outlawv OK...I'll have to see if they are going to do another tune before the break...from backstage...be back...woa...great 'bone solo by Daniel...and now Theo working the keys!

21:09 outlawv Back after the break...added a shout out and Bobby's props to Jack Costanzo, Mr. Bongo, I believe!

21:11 outlawv Catching up on tunes...sort of...

21:11 outlawv Tune (before break): Nice ballad-style opening and closing with flute and violin...didn't get the name.

21:13 outlawv Tune (after break, now): Herbie Hancock's Maiden Voyage (I believe, he didn't announce, but I should really know that tune after years as Jazz DJ!)...anyway, nice flute work on it by Pablo...and Theo Sanders taking a great piano solo, naturally

21:14 outlawv ...everyone is taking something on this one...violin...and now the congero Robertito...

21:16 outlawv Tune (and right into it too): <no name>, but violin and flute doubling...with a little vocalizing by Bobby...

21:23 outlawv ....wow...the dudes stretching out on that one...woa...

21:23 outlawv Tune (and right into it again): <no name>. I think they are stretching to get to the time limit....

21:23 outlawv Oh...I gotta get down there....
