15. thanks / crowd
Track 10 is clearly not an improv, definitely sounds like a composed song; my guess at title based on Skerik's rap.
* = dedicated to "Weize" Aiello (Bellar) who was in the room and who was escorted down the aisle by Skerik while he played "A Love Supreme" with Kirk Joseph
There is a little tiny bit of chatty crowd, mostly only audible on track 14
