Ralph Alessi’s This Against That @ I-Beam

Ralph Alessi with Tony Malaby, Andy Milne, Ben Street and Mark Ferber @ I-BeamWith Ben Street on bass, Mark Ferber on drums, Andy Milne on piano, Tony Malaby on tenor sax, Ralph Alessi trumpet. I-Beam was packed in full :). After a while I realised it’s so much easier to listen to that kind of music with my eyes closed –  otherwise it was too much information. After I discovered that it all blended into one great tripping experience 😀 (- the fact that I still have a jet lag and a small fever as well might have helped). Mark Ferber and Ben Street were just unbelievable.

The more time I spend in New York, the more outside and crazy stuff I start to enjoy – especially hearing it live. Maybe it will start going backwards at some point 😀 But yeah, that was a really authentic Brooklyn jazz experience, somewhere out there in the corner of Park Slope. It was raining heavily, so when we got there with my 2 Estonian friends (Estonians are taking over the city 😉 ), we were all soaking wet. But yeah, the music was great. Really interesting, imaginative duo, they could be fragile and spacious in one moment and the next moment swinging densely. That was some heavy stuff. Beautiful music on the website, too: http://www.landonknoblock.com/live/ I’ve been listening to it for a good hour now.
