Chick Corea, Christian McBride and Brian Blade trio
« on: October 03, 2019, 10:43:12 PM »
Finally saw Chick Corea's latest acoustic trio last night.

Amazing stuff. They did a fun Q&A session for about 40 minutes before the show. No pictures during the actual music, but I got close to see the instruments after!

They played some Ellington, Monk, and even a jazzed-up version of Stevie Wonder's Pastime Paradise! I guess the sound I heard was partly amplified, part direct. I was seated in row T, but the sound was still amazing.

What a great trio!  They are all masters of their instruments.

Yup! Amazing performance and sound, of course. The only problem was going back home to my humble hi-fi. It sounds nothing like what I heard!

Amazing indeed, Dave. I was hoping to catch Chick with Steve Gadd, as I've never seen Gadd live, but I am not complaining. The two, McBride an Blade were outstanding. Good to see Chick Corea looking very healthy - he's lost a lot of weight from a decade ago.

  I believe they are to be in NY Oct 25th in  LI, Tickets [4] left are $125 ea. Most likely a good show but for $250 for me and wifey a NO go. Lincoln Center as well and $450 a ticket only left. "F" that. I'll buy the CD and listen on my reference system with a glass of wine.

Hi Charles,

I was thinking the same thing about the price. I got our tickets at around $100 each, with service and surcharges around $110 each. The Q&A was worth it though. Chick is a funny guy with interesting stories about how he got into music. $450 is a bit steep for me, though.

 Hey Paul well it is $900 for two tickets or a Shunyata USB cable for $900. So instead two cheapies tickets and a TWL USB cable.  :thumb:

Now that I'm old enough and wealthy enough to afford to spend $500 on a pair of tickets, I can't forget how much of my life I spent to set that much aside back in the day.  Us old guys can be pretty dang tight as the term "hard earned dollars" actually means something.

Today, I am going to see the Harry Appleman Trio. With special guest Todd Marcus. Todd is from my hometown of Baltimore. I only heard of him a week ago and now I am going to see him live. He plays bass clarinet; not a very common instrument. Should be a good show.
