Hey folks, yesterday I had the incredible opportunity to go to the Montreal Jazz Festival and see Hiromi and Stanley Clarke in concert. I had, for some reason (ignorance), the preconceived idea that Mr. Clarke most effective weapon was his 4 string Alembic, but yesterday he played all songs but one with a DoubleBass.... I really enjoyed this DB performance than anything I have ever heard from him, incredible musicality, feeling, tone. A totally recommended show to go see. I was somewhat disappointed with the tone of the Alembic/Ampeg combination he had, there was something wrong with the way the EQ was setup or something. They used it only on 1 tune, a crazy version of the Red Hot Chili Peppers' City of Angels. Hiromi... what to say....the prodigy child of both God and the Devil, sent to Earth to bring to us the voices from the sky. Out of this universe.
