FINGER PAINTINGS (CD) is now available…
To an almost embarrassing litany of superlative reports MUST be added hosannas for the performance of Bob Bakert and his assemblage of extraordinarily gifted musicians. Standing O, encore, another standing O, and signed up on the spot for another performance next year.
Trading turns on jazzy riffs and covering classics from the 60's, 70's, and 80's, folk chestnuts done in contemporary style, and original songs by Bob, any of these captivating artists could have carried solo concerts of their own.
Bob Bakert led, sang, and played electric and acoustic guitar. He was masterful in explaining the musical relationships of a jazz ensemble. Mark Tucker played an alternately supportive and lead keyboard. Chris Riggenbach was impressive on rhythm and melodic double bass. And Marla Feney! Oh, my! So sweet and soaring on violin and flute, and simply arresting on soprano and alto saxophone.
I couldn't be more delighted than to report their return booking fall 2016.
