Taking over three venues in the heart of Williamsburg, the day-long event will surely go down in the books as one of the more unique of its kind. Of the many highlights was the super group that Natalie Cressman (Trey Anastasio Band) put together for an evening set at the Brooklyn Bowl.Playing music from all over the world, the trombonist/composer/vocalist brought together drummer Nikki Glaspie (The Nth Power),  guitarist Will Bernard (Stanton Moore Trio), tenor saxophonist/flutist Chris Bullock (Snarky Puppy), bassist Benny Rietveld (Santana), keyboardist Samora Pinderhughs (Emily King, Branford Marsalis), and percussionist Danny Sadownick.
