it’s funny how things that sound like they’ll be so similar can be so different.  in this case, it’s this show and the one the next day.  only a day apart, same line up, many of the same pieces were played.  yet i really enjoyed this, listened to it twice, and did not much care for the other recording.  i say it’s funny because it seems more often to be the other way around, with consecutive shows being very similar, and my different take on these two shows on the 23rd and 24th was unexpected.  anyway, this is the one that i liked… no surprise there!

happy new year!  here’s something upbeat to get our year started.  i’m back at work today after a bit of time off, still full of all the enthousiasm that a new year brings, not yet laid low by the post-holiday blues.  enjoy!
