Forgive me if this is redundant. I did a "find" search and couldn't find anything quite like it. Please point me in the right direction if it already exists.
Here's my quote, [from So What Happened etc.] to get us started, if interested:
"I heard vibraphonist Dick Sisto tonight at the jazz concert, and he fucking rocks!
I have never heard such lyrical playing on that instrument. Subtle, rythmic, melodic stuff. Lovely.
I am used to Charlie Shoemake's bebop [he loves Charlie Parker], which is often playing every-freaking-note at a high rate of speed. [this is probably not fair, he can allow silence, but he tends to high speeds and lots o' notes.]
So two vibraphonists, who also played piano in their own styles, while listening well to each other, backed by a fine bass and drum. Ahhhhhh....The contrast was remarkable, educational, and satisfying.
Now listening to the second cd Sisto gave me for selling his cds. I will play these a lot.
ps, just checked the gigs thread and think it is best I post here. Maybe I should have started a new thread? What did YOU learn today? Must research if it already exists. Sounds like a fine one, to me."
