Jazzdog Posted September 22, 2004 Report Share Posted September 22, 2004 Unfortunately the passes didn't come in the mail until the day after the show! Anyways, the show was fantsatic, James Kammack (?) on bass and Idris on drums. The way Ahmad pulled the trio through each tune was simply a joy to watch, and his control of dynamics is something I had never seen done quite as eloquently. The trio did two pretty decently long sets before an enthusiastic crowd. I aint none too good at describing music, but I really really, really, really REALLY loved this show. One of the things Jamal does extremely well, aside from the aforementioned, is take things to a level in which the band could, given the chance, get lost in the improvisation, he brings them back down to earth and a seemingly effortless way. Even the drum solos were note perfect. Even Kammack, whom I had never seen or heard before but heard of, was seamless in the transitions pulled out all kinds of crazy double stops, allowing Ahmad and Idris to interact, while telling stories of his own. Does this make any kind of sense? I had a very nice week in Maine, 10 days actually, but I am OOHHH so glad to be back home! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
