The first set starts with a reflection of the troubled times we are in. That tune and the next three are all covers of the great songwriting of Paul Simon by various jazz artists. After that, another reflective piece by Hartford area trombonist Steve Davis. Then Chick, who I have been playing a lot frequently and finally a rousing performance from Emmet Cohen with Ron Carter.
