For our third venture into short-lived projects we cross the Atlantic again and home in on the beautiful city of Baltimore. Today's offering once again has a name that raises more questions than I care to answer. More about the name in the introduction to the first set.
With Faux Faux we get a nearly classic line-up of sax, trumpet, bass and drums. Similar to Masada, but oh so different. Soundwise more like Old and New Dreams, I'd say, but then again, when has Tim ever sounded like anyone else?
This seems the only show ever recorded by this band, even though they played at least one more (30 July : The Cinema, Philadelphia). If you have more, please step forward.
