The concert was great, a free show put on by the Deep Listening
Institute at a beautiful Quaker Church/Meeting Hall, the Live
Oak Friends Meeting House. The small square hall had a
retractable skylight and rows of pews facing in different
directions around the room. Conners & Licht opened with a
gorgeous marathon duo set. I noticed Mr. Smith in the hallway
headed toward the parking lot during the intermission, and was
delighted when he came back into the hall with a guitar case and
pulled out the fretless bass (Conners & Licht were both playing
Strats.) The trio played an epic psychedelic jam, with slammin,
funky bass licks from out man Janky, then concluded with a more
subdued, spacy guitar/guitar/harmonica jam. Licht provided
great texture and counter-melody throughout the night, but the
real triumph of the evening was Connors' soaring guitar tone.
Connors pruduced arching melodies & washing sheets of harmonies,
squeezing the sounds out of the guitar whilst bouncing around on
the chair as if he was using every muscle in his body.
I was on the edge of my seat for two hours. What a night !!!!
