Meyer, McLagan and Ellis perform ‘No Yes’

Meyer, McLagan and Ellis perform “No Yes” at the Second Story Garage in Boulder, Colorado.

Our first foray into jazz turned very experimental with this trio. Saxophonist Danny Meyer, bassist Kent McLagan and drummer Jay Ellis improvised all three of the songs they played for us, without so much as a few words beforehand.

Well, at least not any words about tempo or key changes. The conversational back-and-forth between these three was as natural and unpredictable as their music. Since the songs were composed on the spot, none of them had titles until the meandering conversations turned up something everyone liked.
