Just happened to channel surf into a Public TV video of a Newport Jazz Fest. Pat Metheny's Trio sounded really good...Then came Stanley Clarkes' band with TWO bass guitars. IMHO, this was the most indecent display of chops i've heard and seen in years. These guys were so busy fanning, and trying to impress the audience with their physical actions, that I can honestly say I didn't hear any music! I don't know how they got through their set without getting a serious case of whiplash from their sillyness. Then Stanley picked up his double bass and did another tasteless, fanning, double, triple stopping, dancing imitation of a Flamenco guitarist. Folks, show business is alive and well!
