Artist: Goldfish

My pick of the Jazz weekend performances (I must confess I made quite few) was the South African duo Goldfish. Having met studying music in college both “fishies” had a background in jazz which they bring with them into the realm of the electronic. On stage the two swap headphones and samplers at various intervals for double-bass, saxophone and jazz-flute. The pairing turned a packed Bodega bar into a sea of bouncing with fists pumping at every bomb dropped…not exactly your typical jazz weekend routine.
