Chillin' With The Rippingtons

Enjoying one of my favorite modern jazz bands on vinyl while doing a little cooking. 

The Rippingtons are an incredible band - seeing them play live is more like a rock concert than a jazz show due to their heavy drumming and Russ Freeman's amazing guitar skills. I was lucky enough to see them a few years ago when they played at Seattle's Jazz Alley. I had a table right next to the stage - they literally played in my face for over two hours. I LOVED it. My ex, of course, hated it. :)

Here's a couple of shots from that night. These photos were taken from directly my seat without zooming in. What a great show - they sounded flawless. I got to meet the entire band after the show and thank them for all of the great music over the years. I love these guys.
