just want to report that the chicago show last night was really great. you all had me worried, but i thought the band and yukimi were wonderful. maybe not being a musician or vocalist makes me less critical, but i was impressed (particularly when comparing them to the opening band - j davis trio, which have pretty much stagnated in the mid 90s acid jazz-hop groove territory). but i thought her style of singing was very endearing - and i think developing original styles for a jazz singer is very important. she only worried me a bit on the last song - bright nights, where she sorta got lazy i think. but the band swung. maybe they are improving as the tour goes on?
also, they answered my prayer by doing curtis lundys' "never gonna let you go."
