(2003) Live 2-CD set that documents Club d’Elf’s first NYC show on 4/20/00 at the Knitting Factory, with microtonal master Joe Maneri joining the band along with son Mat, John Medeski & Brahim Fribgane, and inducing at least one audience member to go into trance! AllAboutJazz described it as “…colorful, frantic and dangerous as Manhattan rush hour traffic.”

Featuring
Joe Maneri (reeds, voice), Mat Maneri (electric violin), Brahim Fribgane (oud, percussion) John Medeski
(keyboards), Mike Rivard (basses), Erik Kerr (drums), w/Eric Hipp (tenor sax on As Above, Actual Smiles, & Chapel Perilous), Richard Zukowski (voice on Down in the Hole)
