I even managed to squeeze in about an hour of howling free jazz from a band fronted by tenorists Andy Sugg and Kris Wanders, a veteran of the Euro free scene. Whew! Pretty amazing, particularly when Dave Liebman (soprano) joined them for the middle of their three pieces.
A list of the bands I did not see would be extensive and would in itself make an impressive festival program. Several musicians and fans said I was mad to have missed the fierce free jazz of The Kris Wanders Unit, with Leibman as a spontaneous guest. I just bloody well forgot them. Let me recommed their disc On The Edges Of Silence.
