note: disc splits are after tracks 4, 6, and 8.

This was one 4+ hour jam with too many musicians to remember, a constantly evolving "cavalcade of stars". If I had to pidgeon hole it, Disc 1 is an Antibalas set with many guests. Disc 2 and 3 are basically a constantly flowing jam and Disc 4 is the boat's only MAKTUB set (Reggie Watts and Thadeus Turner of MAKTUB plus many guests). At no point were there less than 10 musicians on stage. Brad Houser was certainly performing the entire time. Chris Littlefield, Stanton Moore, Kras and many many more breeze through.

Disc 2 and 3 were hard to track and I'd be happy to reseed them if someone comes up with more logical track splits.

The sound quality suffers from not enough microphones for the horns but you can here them. Occasionally chatty but all in all quite fun and a good listen.

I have the final 40 minutes (~5:30 - 6am) on tape but there's a big cut when one deck died. I chose not to seed that portion. I can make that available to anyone who knows who was playing once Reggie et al finished ;)

There is a slight cut at the 4 hour mark I put the track split at the cut at the end of d2t01 and beginning of d4t02. Probably could've done something better with that but at this point it's time to start working on the next show.
