Thanks to all who came up to hear us venture outside of our usual haunts. Makor is a very hip venue, an oasis of eclecticism lurking in the monocultural shadow of Lincoln Center. (Though presumably the uneasy fit with Uptown concergoing tastes is a big part of why they're moving to TriBeCa.) But it's a great space, with great sound -- as you can hear on the above MP3s. Mike Holober was happy to play an actual acoustic piano for once -- check his solo on "Flux," as well as Ingrid's return to the fold on "Transit," Alan's take on the somewhat revised "Habeas Corpus," and the blistering playing by special guests Ben Kono (also on "Flux") and Dan Willis ("Phobos").
If you missed us at Makor, we will be at the Jazz Gallery on April 5, and then back at the Bowery Poetry Club on May 19 (in a double bill with Kyle Saulnier's band).
