A Full Weekend with the Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra and The Gathering

 On Saturday P.A.P.A. performed at the RedCat Theater at Disney Hall. This year is the 61st year of the ensemble. I think this was a big time gig for P.A.P.A. RedCat is one of the best sounding theaters that I have played in with the ensemble. The other one was at the Wadsworth Theater on the Veteran's Administration grounds in 1997, led by Horace Tapscott. I didn't have time to take photos at RedCat, but downloaded some taken by Chuck Koton, from Facebook. 

Sunday a lot of the same musician's reassembled for a recording of Jesse Sessions group The Gathering. This too was to celebrate the 61st anniversary of the P.A.P.A. We recorded Horace's Ghetto Suite
