Second day of GG Jazz III international festival with all the evidence should have been good. Both listed bands, as I was sorting through their YouTube occurrences and audio streaming sources, had their strengths, had unique sound, and importantly were jazz-fusion bands, not a rather frequent occasion on the festival of “classical jazz” act, delivering mostly a sort of museum exhibition, but a compelling music per se. It was promising, but, in fact, I didn’t have a clue what kind of scale of event I will be exposed to.
