What a great closing night for the Grand festival. Hearing John Oswald perform solo saxophone was definitely
one of the highlights. I dont know how he plays so much, so fast, so beautifully and never seems to repeat himself
(but in a good way)

It was really fun playing a set with him and Rob Clutton after it too. I felt very comfortable sharing the
stage with those guys.

Rob and I were quite happy with our duo set too. It seem like we have broken some new ground trying to
deal with improvisation and composition simultaneously. We didnt record it but the feedback was fantasticl.
(so good to have friends!) Thanks again to Ron Gaskin, Mike Hansen, Soundscapes, Verge Music and Amsterdamn brewery. And to you for coming and making it a Grand FEstival!

p.s. Musicworks is having a benefit Friday night at the Gladstone here in Toronto...I heard it was curated by
mr. Oswald himself, not sure its true but it is a great cause and a cool venue.
