I hope to have the opening set by Esperanza Spalding and Leo Genovese worked up to present for you soon as well, but there's no reason not to post the headliner here now so...

Wish I could've taken you all with me - this was lots of fun and a great night out in Covid times (still Delta I believe, pre-Omicron, to be more specific.) But it was just myself and grner1, in town for a visit and to pick up some repaired and tuned up decks nearby - first some of LA's finest falafel at Amir's and then on to the Bowl.

I hadn't planned on recording. But we all have recorders in our pockets these days, whatever the quality. That evening, mine was just a mono Motorola phone with OK specs but nothing special, hence the ad hoc nature of this. I was hoping I wasn't going to be the only one archiving this wonderful event. I was hoping that someone with much better gear and recording location would have made this recording unnecessary. I was hoping that if I happened to be the only one in the place doing this, that I'd at least have gotten a good recording of it to share, as it was such a great evening of amazing music, perfect weather and hanging out in a great crowd of socially distanced 'friends'.

I did have to work the basic recording quite a bit in order to get it to sound this decent and listenable. But see what you think...

Oh - and do make sure to check out the short YouTube in the link below. It's not from this recording, but it's from this show and is a must see!
