Alex- what a Metheny concert!!!! I love Palle and Marilyn as well! That must have been a gas. What era were the tunes from?
Jealous I missed the show,
Hey Gregg, yeah it was great!
The tunes we played were all originals by Pat, Palle, Marilyn, Tomas Franck and Lan Doky. All good stuff. I didn't even miss a straight ahead jazz standard in there. Too bad you couldn't be there!
Glad to hear you know and appreciate Palle and Marilyn. They both are very dear to me as we've spend A LOT of time together over the years. Ever heard of the "Riel-Mikkelborg Quintet"? I won't blame you if you haven't cos it's a loooooong time ago we won first prize at the Montreux Jazzfestival and played at Newport as well (must have been the late 60s). We also had a group called "V8" in the 70s. Well, we've worked together in so many constellations ... not least with the "Peter Herbolzheimer Rhythm Combination and Brass" ... very fun days!!
As for Marilyn I was in her all-female band (!!) called "Sirenes" and later we formed a band called "Six Winds" who played mostly her compositions.
Loads of memories there as you can probably imagine ...
All the best
