     Album:San Francisco:2004-10-07 Basie100 NY Frim Fram

Yehoodi held a 100th birthday party for Count Basie.

The dancing was great the first two nights. Unfortunately the big night was crowded and the band was doing that too slow/too fast for 10 minute song thing, and there was no late night on Sat! Shame, New York.

I suppose Sunday would've be fun, but I got food poisoning.

Ugh.

Regardless, the first two nights were so much fun, and so many of my favorite dancers were there that it was like a mini-Herrang for two days. Even a bunch of the Hot Shots showed up. The only thing missing was the freezing cold showers. :)
