I have already seen two spectacular shows this month. Return to Forever and Herbie Hancock.
I cant praise enough and thank Return to Forever enough for their show. Chick Corea is genious. He creates all those sounds and textures and makes it all look as simple as driving a car, lol. On this particular show, he played a breathtaking solo before "Romantic Warrior". Wow! Al Di Meola? A monster player. Guitar hero and his solo before No Mystery was just phenomenal. Man!! Stanley Clarke and Lenny White. There was too much talent on stage.
Herbie Hancock was just awesome too. There was Vinnie Colaiuta and Dave Holland on stage. and the two songs Sonia Kitchell sang – River and All I really wanna do were as good as they can get. I was amazed to see her put in so much into those two songs. Absolutely spectacular!!
Coming next are: Keb Mo and Taj Mahal (today), Mose Allison and Larry Coryell later this week, Mark Knopfler and BB King. Wooo.
And ya, I got to meet Peter Buck of REM yesterday. :p Got a pic and got "Automatic for the People" autographed. 🙂
