McCoy Tyner @ the Blue Note

Now I know what the word killing really means, related to music – you just die out of pleasure :D. I was in heaven, a great one. Incredible. The real McCoy Tyner experience 😀 ! It reminded me of Coltrane’s Live At Birdland album, which was the original inspiration for me to come to New York – to see if there still is that kind of energy here. That totally made it to me.  And it was on my birthday. So cool.

With Gerald Cannon on bass and Eric Kamau Gravatt on drums and special guest Gary Bartz on alto & soprano saxophone.

Mark Guiliana's THING @ Rose Live Music – 2009 final

Mark Guiliana's THING @ Rose

The last one in 2009. Featuring David Binney on alto, Jason Lindner on keys, Alan Hampton on bass and Mark Guiliana on drums.  Rose was really crowded, more people than usually. I preferred the second set, but generally I didn’t get so into it this time, for some reason. So far, my most memorable Mark Guiliana experiences have been the HEERNT gig in August and the first time I ever heard him in New York, with Brad Shepik and Bill McHenry. And the last two THING gigs @ Rose.  So, that was the last one in 2009 – I suspect I’m not going to hear Mark’s THING for a while now. Really sad.
