Eddie Palmieri & Brian Lynch Jazz Quartet

What a great performance!
Eddie Palmieri, Brian Lynch, Boris Kozlov and Dafnis Prieto were a joy to listen and watch. Maestro Palmieri impressed me with his showmanship.  He was also a great subject to photograph. 
Boris Kozlov reminded me of a great musician I listened to more than 20 years ago in a far off country.  Could not remember his name though.  Afterwards I dug it out - Anatoly Sobolev!  And he appeared to be Boris's teacher and mentor!  How may world-class bassists could 80-s Moscow have?
Dafnis Prieto is an amazing young drummer - keep your eye on him.
