Re: Oakland show

This came to me from somewhere:

Interplanetary Threnody, a tribute to the myth/science/art of Sun Ra, Yoshi's, Oakland 10/10/94, w/ kash killion, cello, vijay iyer, piano & violin, eddie gale, trumpet, india cooke, violin, miya masaoka, koto, peter apfelbaum, saxophone & percussion, someone on bass whose name I didn't catch, trudy morse, voice & gino robair, percussion, joined at several points by Glenn Spearman, tenor, & an electric violinist whose name I didn't catch. Bay Area jazz did itself proud tonight at Yoshi's, as this worldwide eclectic band paid tribute to Sun Ra with two completely outside sets. The lack of a true rhythm section (both drummers really being percussionists) made things a little slow to get moving at first, but once they did, this raged. Highlights included a blazing duo between Killion, who's dazzling on cello, Gale on trumpet, with morse's scat vocals buzzing like a hummingbird around them, a very 70s Sun Ra solo from Iyer, a fascinating duo between masaoka's koto & the bassist, and several blazing all band jams.
