Saw Pattitucci last night

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by squeegeebrown, Oct 28, 2002.


  1. Saw Wayne Shorter last night.He did not disappoint..Brian Blade on the drums was phenomenal!!! Pattitucci as well.Danilo Perez did some beautiful chord work. I almost didn't go..I was thinking I was going to hear some conventional trad jazz..which is fine..but I am sick to death of it..anyway the music was absolutely beautifully textural and complex..dynamically astounding.. I think it was a little challenging for alot of the crowd to grasp as they seemed a little fidgety. The first two pieces were each 15-20 minutes long.... I was able to lay back and lose myself in it. I am SO glad I went. If you get the opportunity..Go!!!

    Man...I'm envious...I'd love to catch Shorter live. That's very cool.

    What a great story. It was fortunate that you were able to infer he listened to jazz.

    I'm jealous. Patitucci (note the spelling ;)) is my "bass hero", but he's not coming by me anytime soon. Such is life.
