Joshua Redman & Brad Mehldau
When I was in Chicago recently, I enjoyed a magnificent concert at the Chicago Symphony Center. It was a duet with Brad Mehldau on piano and Joshua Redman on sax. I was in the nosebleed section of the hall, but that was not such a bad place to be. The sound was great and I could look down on Mehldau's piano.
I had intended to write a review of the concert before the memory had largely faded. I didn't get around to it. I will only say that it was an exquisite experience. I especially remember their version of "Hey Joe". It was so deeply compelling that I forgot where I was. The clip above gives you a pretty good idea of what I heard.
I am playing 'Belonging (Lopsided Melody)' from Redman's Beyond.
