The Band: Robert Walter - keyboards Eric Krasno - guitar Cochemea Gastelum - sax Adam Deitch - drums

amazing acid jazz improv with guest Karl Denson & more.

* with Reggie Watts' vocals.
# Stevie Wonder tune.
** E.Danger from Lettuce on bass for the rest of the show.
% with Karl Denson on tenor sax and vocals.
$ with a female vocalist.

and at some point in time, other special guests included: Will Bernard on guitar, Brad Houser, Brian Jordan on guitar, someone on percussion.

This quickly turned into another "cavalcade of stars". Lettuce's bass player ET? Sits in from the third song. By the end there was Karl D, Brian Jordan and a several others I can't recall.

The Lirica was a very boomy room and easily the worst sounding room on the boat. I had to doctor this recording. Believe me unless you had 15+ inch w00fers you wouldn't have liked the sound. The filter was also needed to bring out the horns and guitars. As a result the first couple tracks sound a bit thin but once the bass joins in it gets heavier in the low end. I did my best hopefully Caution Recording and JC will officially release this set as it was one of the top sets (IMHO) of the cruise. Some very chatty spots.
