Well, I threatened a new message on Djam Karet, and after Davin's comments, I felt compelled to follow through.

As Davin said, Djam Karet is/was definitely different from the other bands at NEARfest - they ARE primarily a jam band - but I will slightly modify Davin's comments by saying that they have a lot of insanely INSPIRED jamming, over some simple, and some not so simple riffs; add in nice arangements, changes in the background riffs, the occasional odd meter and some cool polyrhythms, and I still think that justifies my excitement over them - but let us know what you listeners think...

Oh, yeah - I'd agree with that. One thing I didn't credit Djam Karet with at NEARFest was the incredible job the new bassist did. He really was the "leader" of the band, with a ton of energy on stage (not to mention talent). And he had only been with the band 3 months!!

They are definitley a talented bunch!
