Project Live at Jillian's

A very different Project Live gig tonight -- TRIO! With just MC Matt, DJ Frank I, and myself, we managed to make a night of music for a great audience at Jillian's. From improvised tunes, to spoken word-and-trombone, to full-on pop covers, I was thankfully surprised to find that we could actually sound like a full band and do "our thing" without the benefit of our usual 7-or-8-man posse. Ever evolving, Project Live continues to open up my own ears musically, and gives me some hope that the concept of "jazz" -- be it a style, genre, approach, or just a vibe -- will not die out in the 21st century.
