That was so sick! Those guys have the flow of time totally wrapped around their fingers and just make it go in such tasty wicked ways, with so much texture. I wish I could hear them once a week to get a dose of that. Keith Carlock is just totally out of this world. 😀 And he just got an instruction DVD out – seemed really interesting, 2 discs of THE BIG PICTURE – PHRASING, IMPROVISATION, STYLE AND TECHNIQUE. Didn’t have $40 for it, though. Otherwise, they said it’s for drummers and musicians 😀

Sullivan Hall is pretty cool, too,  has got a really nice vibe. My only complaint is that it sort of stinks. Maybe just that time, though. But yeah, also felt a bit sorry for all the guys – practically no girls hanging at that kind of shows. Clearly a bonus for me, nobody else uses the ladies room (especially good because it doesn’t lock there anyway).

Wayne Krantz! xD

But then, another significant experience – later on the train home, I somehow began to reminisce about Omer Avital’s bass solo last night – think i heard him play a piece of  26-2 into it. So that made me start listening to Coltrane’s Sound – don’t know if it was because I’d been smoking a little bit or what – but I got into such a nice transcendental experience with it. Of course, I’ve always liked the record, but never realized that clearly how good the stuff really is. So much in every single second of it. Maybe all that New york jazz has put me to hallucinate here, but the music sounded so real in the headphones as if they were playing just there. Had such a great trip home 😀

  1. Nüüd võiks vahelduseks ka mõnest halvast kontserdist pajatada. Ma juba imestangi, et miks neist midagi kuulda pole -arvestades, et halva heliteenuse pakkujaid on kõvasti rohkem, kui kvaliteetsetmuusikat pakkuvaid bände.

    Kuhu kõik luuserid on kadunud?!

    • No mine paar postitust tagasi, pühapäevane asi mulle ei meeldinud. Teisipäeval mõned asjad. Ja tegelikult, ma siis lihtsalt ei kirjuta, kui ei meeldi. Milleks?
      Pealegi, ma käin ainult headel kontserditel 😉 Ja noh, New York on see. Kõige magusam koht selle asja jaoks.

  2. The Trio is back in NYC— something of a big show at Highline Ballroom on April 24th 2010 with another amazing support act Consider The Source.
    Totally a show to check out and to be there early.
