Wish I lived in PDX so I could take Manatee’s class. Good people.
The way Hopkins pushes Jerry is what makes his stint in JGB some of my favorite music ever. When they were on (which happened VERY sporadically) it was so freaking good. Transcendent. I love Keith and the stuff with Merl and Melvin, but Hopkins seems to continually bait and challenge, which brings out some truly majestic playing in the big man. Tutt and Kahn (while no slouches) must have had a blast just sitting back in the cut and watching those two square off. Freaking love it.
