Waterfront World & Early Evening Club Cruising 

[image-x]

I bypassed Main Street in Burlington and made my way down to the waterfront via Maple Street and was captivated by the long uninterrupted view of the shimmering lake as George described. What a great day to be alive and watching live music.  Not much to add to his review other to say that I never thought I would live long enough to see three white guys playing in the Skatalites. I also departed after their set, because...

I wanted to see Sambatucada (local Brazilian Samba street band) at the Saturday Night Block Party
on Church Street. There nothing like a percussion ensemble to make folks start bobbing their heads and feet.

I then made my way to Club Metronome to see the extended version of the 35th Parallel (local duet of guitar and tabla) who change their name to the Mediterrasian Jazz Ensemble when they add some jazz horns into the mix. Interesting to say the least.

Also picked up Guagua (local Brazilian & Latin ensemble) at City Hall Stage at 3:00pm. Always enjoy this group and so did the spectators. Kal Traver (alto sax), who Jill Kilpatrick mentioned in her posting of 5/15/07 (Let's Get Local) has added some serious chops since she and Alex Toth have moved to Boston.

Sorry to see the sun set on this day.
