Music on a Monday in Seattle? There's always the default: Michael Shrieve's Spellbinder. Replete with dancing hippies, Fremont tweakers and middle aged Seattle dudes into jazz fusion. You can always escape out back on the porch with the other freaks if yr freakin out. Michael Shrieve generally shredding on the drums, having a ball. Danny Godinez on guitar swapping between a hollow body Gibson and a classical as he sits on a stool and lays down runs across the fretboard with facial expressions to match musical expressivity. Farko Dosumov on bass who doesn’t stop moving the entire four hours, getting to rip out the occasional 70s style 5 string bass solo in the upper registers. Can’t remember the name of the keyboardist (it wasn’t Joe Doria) but he was chill in the corner vamping then putting down melodic solos. John Fricke with effects-o-rama on the muted trumpet, including wah, sustain and more.
Jungle strut down the rabbit hole.
