Kilaas Group at the Velvet Lounge June 20, 2008

This recording is from a concert at the Velvet Lounge. Earlier during the day I was doing a jazz concert at Jewel Osco with Jephthe Lanthia, Daron Nelson and Jonathan Gaska, I received a phone call from Dan Melnick asking if I could come and play at the Velvet that night because one of the artists cancelled at the last minute. I told him sure. So I asked the cats there if the wanted to play and then got on the phone to ask some of my friends if the wanted to play a gig that night. So we all got together without rehearsal and basically had a jam. This is what came out of it. I'm so happy it was recorded because it was a magical night. The musicians playing are: Saalik Ziyad on vocals, Dudley Owens on tenor sax, Jarrit Sheel on trumpet and effects, Jonathan Gaska on guitar, Julian Chin on piano, Jephthe Lanthia on bass, Daron Nelson on drums and special guest Shaun Johnson on trumpet
