(Pardon me while I finish burning my basses) Maybe the most awesome show I've ever seen! The level of talent of every band member on that stage was incredible. Poogie Bell on drums laid down some of the funkiest beats I've ever heard. Also, I've never been a big fan of the trumpet (apologies to Miles), but Michael Stewart just about made me change my mind! Then...there was Marcus. I've never seen him before last night. It seems that just listening to his cd's sort of numbs you to what he is actually doing, but to see him do it live reminds you of just how impressive it is to pull off those licks, and do it for two hours! May have been the best live sounding bass I've ever heard. Never "boomy" or uneven, but tight, focused, and articulate all across the spectrum. But the thing I most enjoyed was the expression of the whole band. Instead of looking like a band doing yet another in a long string of concerts, I felt like they were just a bunch of friends jammin' in their basement and just happened to invite a thousand friends over. Can't wait to see him again! If you get the chance, don't miss him. Check his schedule at www.marcusmiller.com.
