The music was an incredible mix of jazz from the depths of the listener's imagination and jam that involved improvisation between the flawlessly executed lines and phrasing. Haas leapt out of his seat on many occasions, even knocking it to the ground while abusing the grand piano, as well as his electric keys. Chris Combs (guitar) read Haas and hit every note that he intended with screaming perfection. Combs' solos were intense, shredding and reflected a side of his playing that I had yet to see. The sonic out put and flow between Haas and Combs was captivating and had me sitting on the edge of my seat, while Josh Raymer (drums) picked up the pieces and held the madness together with a beat that the capacity room could groove to... at times. The trio was loose and jammy featuring extended solos when it so desired and as tight as most jazz ensembles throughout the note for note melodies.
