Default Re: Brian Blade

Brian's unbelievable, saw him last year with Wayne Shorter's quartet and it was one of the best gigs I've seen. I had really cheap tickets in a big theatre, but a friend informed me after the support band played that a few people hadn't turned up for their front row seats, so I ended up getting to sit right at the front, center stage :) I posted this in another thread a while ago, but if anyone's interested in trying out a transcription for Jazz Crimes, it's here:

and I made a backing track to play along with (full tempo and slowed down) here:

There are some really cool chops there... but I never did manage to nail it!

I heard he played with his Fellowship band in New York last night, is there a tour on? There's nothing on his website
