Key Motion Quintet @ Jazz Standard

The Key Motion Quintet show at Jazz Standard on 12/8/11 was probably the closest I’ve been to feeling like I’m at The Fillmore in the 70s (which is a great feeling!). With Dave Douglas and Donny McCaslin up front, blowing freely and funkily, Adam Benjamin shuttling things to other worlds, Tim Lefebvre’s crunchy pulsations and Mark Guiliana’s human drum machine (in a good way) efforts – this was one of the solidly interesting gigs in mind and spirit I’ve been to in a while. Stage lighting was aptly dark and moody, so the shots are moody and gritty too.
