Nir Felder Quartet @ the Stone
So I did hear Nir Felder’s music again – really incredible how different it sounds with another lineup: Aaron Goldberg on piano, Chris Lightcap on bass, Jim Black on drums, Nir Felder on guitar. It was much more organic this time, didn’t find it too complicated at all. These guys have just endless flow of ideas, really enjoyable to listen. Nir Felder doesn’t waste any notes, everything is so well directed and makes a lot of sense – and on top of that has a really great versatile guitar sound. And I’ve been a fan of Aaron Goldberg ever since I got his album Worlds (has been in extremely heavy rotation lately). The concert was a real treat for a jazz fan. Almost a dream lineup for this kind of music, I figure, maybe would be cool to hear the same thing with Mark Guiliana on drums.
