The exact lineup of Ancient Future that performed on the band's influential World Without Walls and Asian Fusion recordings will be reuniting to perform their first concert together in over 15 years. This is a one-time-only chance to catch this special reunion performance by the lineup that played over a hundred concerts together between their first appearance on August 21, 1988 at the Concert in the Forest, a benefit for the Friends of the Cathedral Forest near Breitenbush Hot Springs, Oregon, and their August 26, 1995, show for the Calaveras Arts Council. In that time, they headlined such venues as San Francisco's Great American Music Hall and Eugene's Hult Center for the Performing Arts, appeared at numerous jazz festivals such as the Sacramento River Jazz Festival, Cotati Jazz Festival, Valhalla Jazz Festival, and Sand Harbor, and shared bills with other leading jazz and contemporary music artists including Fourth World with Flora Purim and Airto, Tower of Power, Craig Chaquico, Acoustic Alchemy, and Ottmar Liebert.
The reunion show features Matthew Montfort on scalloped fretboard guitar, Jim Hurley on violin, Doug McKeehan on keyboards, and Ian Dogole on percussion. Their uptempo virtuoso music is an exhilarating mix of jazz improvisation and the exciting rhythms and exotic sounds of world music. The evening show at Yoshi's will also feature special guests from the band's recordings including noted sitarist Pandit Habib Khan, who appears with this exact band lineup on the song "Socha Socha" on the Planet Passion recording.
