Matt "Doc" Dunn's Galactic Jazz Band - [first excerpt]

Matt "Doc" Dunn's Galactic Jazz Band - [second excerpt]

The group that Matt "Doc" Dunn brought to the Music Gallery in September was too damn good to exist as a one-off, so it was a real treat to see them play a casual and intimate set in the back of Grasshopper Records on Dundas. Clustered around the record bins, the four-keyboard (Dunn plus Carl Didur, Mike Smith and Jonathan Adjemian), dual-percussion (Brandon Valdivia and Keiran Adams) alignment was augmented this time with Colin Fisher on sax and percussion, pushing things to an even further cosmic plane. Besides those sax grooves, this is also a slightly better capture from my end, so it's worth posting this, even if the terrain overlaps a bit from what I put up last time. And once again, the first clip here is swingingly funky, the second sublimely spiritual.

[You can also check out Ayal Senior's video capture of the set in two chunks.]
