Saw this show last night and it was wonderful! The final collaborative piece, “Rainbow” was excellent– something like Edgar Myer’s “Appalachian Waltz” except instead of Appalachia, it’s the Hindu-Kush and instead of a waltz it’s an extended, improvised raga.
As an encore, the group played a Phillip Glass arrangement of the Bob Dylan song, “Don’t think twice it’s alright,” which made me melt. A recording of that one is being released as part of a benefit for Amnesty International. May need to check it out.
Another strange thing about that song, is that in a brief jam session Friday night with one of my house mate’s friends, we were playing that song. So, it was a weird instance of synchronicity for me.
Tonite it’s a polar bear swim in English Bay followed by sauna. But first: raking leaves!
