This is Vince and I'm about to go frontstage to introduce Jazz Live San
Diego and Bobby Matos Sextet!
19:45outlawvI'll be back after I kick off the show!
20:10outlawvOK...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!
20:12outlawvMark Weinstein wrote that last tune...which Bobby
didn't name on the stage.
20:13outlawvTune 3 of the set, from Beautiful As The Moon...a
20:18outlawvgreat violin work by Daniel Weinstein...and a quote
from something yiddish at the end too...
20:21outlawvOh...and that last tune was called "Beautiful As The
20:21outlawv...and now they are doing "Blue Monk" (I think that's
the Monk tune we are listening too)...
20:24outlawvDaniel sets down his violin and plays the trombone on
this one. Bobby playing the sides of his timbales.
20:27outlawvNice mellow intro and kicking it up mid-tune!
20:30outlawvOh..."Monks Mood" was the tune...Bobby saw Monk tap
dancing in front of the 5 Spot in NYC back in the day..
20:32outlawvMongo Parasas Matamor Mambo...not quite
right...searching...that was Bobby dancing on stage that the crowd dug!
20:36outlawvTune: <no title> written by the sax player in the
band, Pablo Calogero...
20:37outlawvI 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
20:42outlawvNo intro on this tune...just sticks to kick it off!
20:43outlawvOK...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!
20:49outlawvBobby tunes us in with the cosmic music from
above...and lots of hours sitting on the piano composing...
20:49outlawvTune: Early Morning Song...that's when it came to him!
21:11outlawvTune (before break): Nice ballad-style opening and
closing with flute and violin...didn't get the name.
21:13outlawvTune (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
21:14outlawv...everyone is taking something on this
one...violin...and now the congero Robertito...
21:16outlawvTune (and right into it too): <no name>, but
violin and flute doubling...with a little vocalizing by Bobby...
21:23outlawv....wow...the dudes stretching out on that one...woa...
21:23outlawvTune (and right into it again): <no name>. I
think they are stretching to get to the time limit....
