An excellent sounding show. The first using my new recorder. There are a few minor flaws, caused mostly by me trying to re-adjust my croakie mics under my collar. I'm sure no one is going to mind. Overall, the recording quality turned out beyond my expectations. This had a lot to do with the audience acting accordingly, by refraining from chatter for the most part.

As for the performance, besides outstanding solos from everyone, I think the band seems a little less aggressive with Brian Blade. As much as I love his playing with Wayne Shorter, I would've preferred Vinnie Colaiuta. Another disappointment, though a very minor one, was the unbelievably short version of "In A Silent Way", an absolute highlight from the live CD. But after almost 2.5 hours of playing, I imagine the guys were tired. Overall, an unbelievable once-in-a-lifetime concert experience, no fusion fan should've missed...Enjoy!!!
