LISTENING POST: Burnt Sugar — "Love to Tical"

Can it be?  Can it really have been 10 years of Burnt Sugar?

Damn.  I remember when maestro Greg Tate performing with his first band, Women in Love.

Anyway, time flies.  This Saturday, Burnt Sugar will be celebrating its first decade with a performance at NYC's Joe's Pub.  You may recall that this is a loose improvisational group that Greg holds together by using Butch Morris's conduction method.

You can get tickets via the Joe's Pub site here.

Also, check out this song from the band's recent Livewired release, "Making Love To The Dark Ages."
