Gogo Fightmaster Ivy Room 8-10-2009

Played at the Ivy Room this past Monday with Aaron Bennett’s Gogo Fightmaster. Aaron’s a great tenor player and the first time I saw this group a few years ago I really liked what I heard. Aaron and I have done some playing together mainly with Weasel Walter, and our playing styles, though different go well together – lots of energy. Fighmaster has John Finkbeiner on guitar, Lisa Mezzacappa on bass and Vijay Anderson on drums. The music has lots of sixteenth notes and extreme registers. It was a good set.

We’ll be playing a saxophone duo set this Friday at the Flux Theater in Oakland.
