here’s the ahmed abdullah show from the next night, in d.c. space.  i used to go there quite a lot in the late 70’s & early 80’s, though at the time i was more into punk, new wave, blues and southern rock (but already had a few jazz lps… so it begins).  it was an amazing club.  a lot of people there also went to the old 9:30 club at 930 f street (was it the atlantic building? atlantis?  anyway, there’s another blast from the past) as the music was more regular (too much, well, jazz & stuff at d.c. space that, sadly, i now regret missing).  by the time of this show, though, i had already moved away.

anyway, i know that on the last posting, i said that from the setlist this seemed like it might be just a first set.  but at 2 hrs 18 mins, i have to question that thought…  just saying.
