my favorite of several recordings shared by ‘glasnostrd19′ of tiger okoshi at the willow in somerville, ma.  it’s another of those locations that i vaguely feel that i know just from the recordings there, a topic that i’ve touched on before.  other places in that general neck of the woods would  include the sidedoor jazz club in old lyme, ct and also the ramada inn, schenectady, ny (another tip o’ the hat to the planetfuncamp folks and to csatennis).   little beacons on my mental map of the world, “if i’m ever in massachusetts…”.  back to this show, if you’re on dime, it’s worth doing a search for “okoshi” or “willow”.
