Luis Perdomo piano, Jamie Baum flute and Jason Palmer trumpet
Jmaie Baum's group had one of the most interesting instrumentation and musically that I saw at the festival. Her group included flute, trumpet, French horn, alto sax, bass clarinet,guitar, bass, piano,drums and tabla and other percussion from India.

Beautiful compositions and arrangements with great playing.
Luis is my favorite living pianist. He plays with numerous groups, as well as leading his own groups. I first met and saw him perform with Ralph Irizarry's salsa group about 10 years ago. I later got to know him when I saw him play with Miguel Zenon, the great Puerto Rican sax player and band leader. He is the kind of pianist who always raises the level of the music every time he plays by his tasty comping and timbaos as well as his increidble solos.

An outstanding jazz group led by the Jensen sisters. I was not aware of Christine Jensen but her sister is a well respected trumpeter who play with many different groups.
Christine is a well respected composer of music for small as well as large jazz groups. She is a professor at McGill University in Montreal, Canada.
Nver found out who the girl underneath the piano belonged to, but she seamed at home under there and entertained herself during the performance.

DONNY MCCASLIN GROUP

Donny McCaslin is a talented saxophonist who usually played straight ahead jazz. At the end of David Bowie's life, Donny played with him and the last two of Donny's recordings I would characterize as David Bowie influenced music - with vocals, guitar, electronics and solos. This was the type of music he played at the festival. He was well received by the crowd, but I have to admit, I did not care that much for the music.
