|We saw this on the Ear Shot Jazz bulletin and decided to volunteer, we had no idea these guys would Blow us Away.|
The powerhouse elder statesman of European free-jazz reprises his collaboration with two masters of America’s Black avant-garde: bassist William Parker and drummer Hamid Drake. Brötzmann first came together with Parker and Drake through the Die Like A Dog Quartet in the mid-1990s. Since then the three musicians have performed in a variety of ensembles and collaborations, releasing an album as a trio in 2003, Never Too Late, But Always Too Early.

|At 9 am on June 3rd, the Rocket made a perfect five minute sub-orbital flight from the Fremont rocket works, touching down at the Center of the Universe. The Rocket bears the Fremont crest and motto, “De Libertas Quirkas”-which means “Freedom to be Peculiar.” Neon laser pods have been installed on each fin and on the nose. And in launch mode steam vapor emanates from the Rocket base. The vision is to turn the 53′ high monument into Fremont’s own FM radio station sometime in the near future. see http://fremont.com/about/storyrocket-html/|

June doesn’t just break, but destroys several Seattle temperature recordsSee: http://www.komonews.com/weather/blogs/scott/June-doesnt-just-break-but-destroys-several-Seattle-temperature-records--311125801.html
We are dealing with it by buying an extra fan, No AC in this built in 2001 high rise condo building. When you get 90 degree weather in Seattle the Natives get grouchy. But we beat it by just finding fun stuff to do and get home after the sun goes down and the air starts to cool down. We can leave the back patio door open and put a fan by it to draw in the cooler evening air and I think we only sweated a couple of times trying to sleep at night. A lot like living on a boat!
