i went to a jazz festival this past weekend... i wasn't in the mood for most of the music played there... but, i did make one interesting discovery for myself: saxophonist Rudresh Mahanthappa (and his awesome backing band, which had a guitarist named David Gilmore)

here's a sample from youtube

also this group, called Kandinsky Effect, was there... they were also quite enjoyable...

well, hey there, hehman!
i think you did a nice job and everyone did too individually... but how often do you guys practice together? it seemed a bit disjointed, even for a jazz performance.

Why, thank you George! That's actually the first public performance we've ever given, and it was just for a student convocation for our music department. It's definitely a work in progress! Thank you for watching!

Holy shit.

My University had a jazzfest last night. As a student, I was able to score two, front-row-center tickets for $8 each. The performers were:

Nathan Davis - soprano and tenor sax
Quamont Fowler - tenor sax
Donald Harrison Jr. - alto sax
Randy Brecker - trumpet
Maurice Brown - trumpet
Curtis Fuller - trombone
Geri Allen - piano
Larry Coryell - guitar
Abe Laboriel Sr. - electric bass
Billy Cobham - drums

It was a hell of a show. I had never heard Abe, Billy, or Randy play straight-ahead swing before, but holy shit was it amazing. The unknowns on the list were easily as good as the big names, with Maurice Brown surprising everyone. Please pick up some of his albums. Apparently they're jazz/rap albums where he plays trumpet and raps. Abe Laboriel was probably the highlight of the night, as even in his relatively-old age he was running around the stage doing bass solos and palm-slapping the crap out of the instrument.

On the other hand, Curtis Fuller's chops are clearly going. He was trying to solo and he was obviously losing his breath and trying to play notes but not being able to get them out.

No unauthorized recordings or photography allowed. Good luck breaking that rule in the front row.

hide the recorder in your pocket.


From this history of saxophone...
Quote:
Sax took the instrument to famed composer Hector "Boom Boom" Berlioz, who immediately recognized the new horn's magical ability to separate women from their undergarments. Berlioz encouraged Sax to move to Paris where he could use the new instrument to, in his words, "get his freak on." And thus was born the modern era of consensual sodomy laws.
:lol:
