live stuff: wogram root 70/african flashback at the reithalle, offenburg, 17/11/06

I caught this on a brief visit to France, part of the Strasbourg Jazz Festival featuring a mix of French- and German-based acts performing at venues both sides of the border. Tonight:

1. Wogram Root 70--Kiwi/German foursome: sax/trombone/bass/drums/occasional melodica/even a bit of throat singing. Enjoyable. Tuneful. Excellent musicians. And...

2. African flashback. French trio--drums/clarinets/bass. A mix of simple tunes (too simple) and some wild discordant free-form stuff. Not much to my liking to be honest.

Cool venue though...
