Download: duet show w/Bela Fleck .. April 24 1996 .. Kalamazoo, MI

Here’s a rare one – besides the solo shows and the band shows and even the duet shows with Sonny Emory – this is a duet show with Bela Fleck on banjo.

This is a soundboard recording from 1996 and stands out as a highlight of the wonderful collaboration between Bruce and Bela… unsurprisingly, almost completely unrehearsed. They were both part of the Gilmore Festival and guested on a panel on improvisation. Later that night came this show, where they practiced what they had earlier preached.  

Thanks to Kristin for the idea of the download on our Facebook group!
