I'm being asked to turn off my ad-blocker to read this article. I will not do that. What is the gist?

I was at that show. My first time experiencing Shepp. He leaned against or half sat in a chair for the 60-70 minutes that he was on stage. Took the time to introduce every tune and connections to Coltrane (like explaining who Cousin Mary was) which I think is how most such theater shows should go. I greatly enjoyed the performance, though primarily due to the material and the supporting band. I’m a big fan of Moran and Waits, trumpeter Amir ElSaffar was the revelation to me, and bassist Daryl Hall was solid. Shepp played just a few choruses on each tune, and at times it seemed the ensemble wasn’t sure what should happen next (and not necessarily in a good way).
