It was a hot and muggy night at the Crystal Ballroom. Kamasi was on fire and added to the heat all night. A solid two hour show from his big band. I really feel like they are messing very well. The jams all night where tight. I would like to call out the bassist in particular. That guy was amazing. Good performance from start to finish.
First in a double header weekend for PDX Jass Festival 2020. A rather empty room which was great. Allowed me to get close and still have room to dance. Such a good show that night. Jessica to end the set was amazing. Great music and great way to kick off the weekend. Almost overslept but I made it in time for Karl.
When we arrived the line getting in wrapped around the block. It was a packed night for sure but a good time. The crowd was ruckus and the music great. We only caught Yonder but it was still worth going that night.
First time seeing Kamasi Washington perform and I was not disappointed. A truly amazing show. Such a good vibe from the band and the people. Lots of love to go around
