John McNeil @ Royale

W John McNeil (trumpet), Mike Fahie (trombone), Bjorn Solli (guitar), Jorge Roeder (bass) and Rob Garcia (drums). Got there pretty late into the opening set but heard them play great classic stuff like Stablemates and Milestones –  with nice arrangements. I liked Jorge Roeder on bass  (again, also remember him with Brad Shepik @ Cornelia) and Rob Garcia on drums, mixing in some latin grooves. I’ve heard so many good things about the guitar player, but I wouldn’t really agree, after this one.

Heard some of the jam session as well, there were quite a lot of people – played Stella and Lazy Bird. Didn’t see the rest of it.
