Thanks @Rob for coming and playing. Boise appreciates your musical contribution.

Thanks @Joe, I will check the links out. Some of the musicians are from Boise. Others from Western states. Still others from Europe. AFAIK, there aren't a lot of festivals for these improvisers to gather so they tend to congregate wherever there is a good organizer. And Kris Hartung definitely provides a guiding force to make this happen every year.
