John Scofield trio @ Madison Square Park

There was something about August 5th in New York – all the great concerts seemed to be booked on one day. For example, there was John Scofield Trio @ Madison Square Park, a free gig! Really nice hang out there, lying on the lawn listening to John Scofield, Steve Swallow and Bill Stewart:D Those guys are even better than I thought! Sco is such a happening guitar player, even now, full of ideas and energy. His sound was just mind-blowing, even at the park. He used reverse loops a lot, really inspired experimental funk-jazz-blues. Steve Swallow was swinging real hard. The level of that trio was just completely something else. Yeah, and they even played Green Tea from A Go go. That gig really took off, one of the best concerts I’ve ever heard. Feel really sorry for everybody who wasn’t there :D…

  1. jahah, see kõik on väga lahe, aga nüüd räägi ka pisut asjast: mida publik tegi? Mis tüübid seal olid? Kas midagi alternatiivset ka juhtus? Kuidas sa neid kirjeldaksid? Mingid juhuslikud tegelased või esteetidest muusikafriigid? Keegi purgerit ka sõi vä?

  2. Ma ei julge selles asjas küll nõu anda kuidas filmi kätte saada. Sest minu esimene loomulik reaktsioon -kasutada kruvikeerajat -võib mõnedel puhkudel ka valeks osutuda. Kuigi tavaliselt on ikka nii, et kui keerata ära mõned kruvid ja siis vaadata natukene -siis enamasti jääb ikka midagi silma, ja võib vabalt olla, et saadki sedasi filmi aparaadist kätte.

    Aga ma olen seda ka kuulnud, et mõnedel aparaatidel polegi filmi sees. Et -täitsa kummaline -asju salvestatakse mingi plaadi sisse. No terve mõistus ütleb kohe, et selline asi pole lihtsalt võimalik, aga osad ikka väidavad.

    Inimesed on ikka nii kergeusklikud…
