i went on saturday...
good weather, great music, and free -
i caught "Michael Ross Quartet" and Brian
Bromberg’s "Downright Upright Band " -
both were scorthing - and the real surprise was Michael Ross band - local to the Tampa area, this band has a real NY sound...if my eyes were closed i would have though mike brecker, and steve kahn were on stage...
bromberg released a great cd this year...star studded - but the stage renditions were even hotter...
randy brecker was smoking - he is sparkling...
mitch forman and meeks were so pumped up - and playing like this was there last performance on the planet...giving the music and the audience a real treatment....
dave weckyl is perfect for these tunes...lots of energy and a real contemporary sound...i saw him with chicks electric band in NYC twice in two weeks and knew he was gonna make a dent in the scene....
p.s. - i am proud to say that i have made WFIT history - i was the firstlive show on the air since the flood...we are in temporary digs...with unpredictable gear..and no library - but we are live again...and i love it....i will be building a list of cd's needing replacement - and asking for help...thanks - ahead of time....
