Espirito was often given a Monday night spot, but on this occasion, a double night booking on a Tuesday and Wednesday gave me the chance to capture the band over two consecutive nights.

The photo above shows the regular band as it was in 1985 with Christopher Soulos playing bass (thanks for the picture Chris) but on these two nights Luciano was playing bass and there were guest trumpeters in addition to Vlad Khusid (shown here). The first tune of the night is a bit dull from a sound point of view, but with judicious amounts of 323, the mixes liven up after that.
