Dun-Dun Band - unknown

It's always exciting to see Craig Dunsmuir bringing this all-star unit out for a show, meshing his pattern-based guitar pieces with the big band's grooves. With a music stand filled with small slips of paper he'd occasionally refer to, Dunsmuir sometimes looks like a a guy with a "scientific system" on his way to the track, eager to see if the patterns he'd abstracted will apply to real-world data. Meanwhile, Dunsmuir's guitar lines sound equally like they could have been transposed from guimbri riffs or sequencer loops, but in a band setting they unfold with a non-deterministic glee. There were the usual rollicking selections in this set, but I was especially taken by this slow-burning interval.

* Does anyone know the title to this one? Please leave a comment!
