    Well, mostly he did Dave Brubeck songs, though there was an awesome rendition of "Someday My Prince Will COme"...

    I have some friends who played with him one time. Me, I've played with a drummer who played with Monk in the late 60's/early 70's. Talk about being sonned.

    well, anyone who knows anyone knows that the drums are the foundation, and this guy Randy Jones fuckin SMOKED... 5 drums, 5 cymbals, ALL dynamis... the bass player, who we call 'the good' Michael Moore was fucking all over it, arps and furios scalar stuff, never even an iota of misintonation, I was stupified!

    Kaes, seriously, what's it been like 5 years I'm sayin' we need to get something happening? Check your email, I'm gonna send you an mp3 here in a sec.

    Michael Moore? Holy crap, he's a pretty damn good player, to say the least. I've been meaning to get a lesson with him for a while.

    I heard he's one of the nicest, coolest and humblest cats out there. Like if I got a lesson with him, and were to see him at a club he'd be like, hey lemme buy you a drink.

    word, he was probably the lowest key of them all, he stood to the back kinda behind/between the piano and drums, he'd bust out with the goods and then he'd just look at Dave or the drummer and kinda get a check and play on... we debated about wether it was the bass or the drums that actually ruled the show, in the end I went with the drums and Eric said it was all about the soloist, Bobby Militello... he played sax and flute, both fabulously and he treated the melodies very nicely, his solos were super clean and well structured but... I can't give it to the soloist, that's my job... and then Dave just ruled it all from underneath... I was also awed by that, I would love to hook up with a super-arranger like that...

    The show was crazy, apparently Dave had laryngitis and then after intermission he got the chills so he played most of the second set wearing a big beige trench coat and a super huge red muffler... he stripped it all of for Take 5 (of course) but the drum solo is what actually rules that song so... it was just good to see him feeling better, said a few words at the end, it was amazing.

    Oh, but not to hate on the soloist... they played Take 10 and during his solo he quoted most of the melody to Four by Miles so, that was fresh...

    I feel it's really about the group sound...the group is one living organism. If you were affected by the performance in any way, which it seems you were, they were all doin' their job. That's what I make of it at least.

    no, totalil, espescially in a quartet setting but, you know... gotta critique... I mean, I can't play it so at least I can hate on it... and I can't hate on the whole so I am forced to break it down just to make my penis feel a little bigger...

    (ok, 'totalil' was a typo for totally but is almost feels like a real word so I'm gonna leave it)
