Re: Brian Blade
My band saw them on Wednesday...
We've all agreed that Brian Blade was the star of the show, along with Kenny Garrett, and Christian McBride.
Chick was great, but not as good as I was hoping. John Mclaughlin was a freak (of course) but a little too choppy for my liking. The calls of "Mahavishnu" were very predictable though.
Brian dropped a stick, which was funny, but was in flying form all night long. McBride's solos were outstanding, and Kenny brought a massive amount of emotional energy to the stage.
Wishing I was Stanton Moore...
