Thank you for featuring this wonderful group playing and commenting on this most wonderful music. After hearing them on this program a couple of years ago, I went to see them at The Zinc Bar. My friends and I spent a delightful evening, enjoying the musicians' own evident enjoyment as much as the music itself.
