If you were tired of all that singing business, or really like saxophones (or both!) Pressed was the place to be on Friday as St. John's Ouroboros returned for a show with tourmates The Night Watch. The quintet features four horn players and a drummer, and like to mix their Balkan jazz with a steady dose of world music. Here's saxophonists Greg and Susan and drummer Andrew!
Nicole and Chris round out the combo!
More Nicole and Chris!
Even more saxophone!
The whole lot!
And also a bit of clarinet.
On to The Night Watch; I caught them just last month at Pressed for their CD reveal. The lighting for that show was pretty bad, and I didn't do much shooting; it was a little better this time around. Here's Nathanael on guitar (also from Musk Ox).
Violin action with occasional Ox Evan!
Rythm section action with Daniel and Matt!
Even more Nathanael!
Since the stage wasn't crowded enough, the folks from Ouroboros came up to add some horns and percussion.
Side view action!
And so on!
A really jumping show.
