    Default Good Gig Guide

    Pat Metheny

    Got tickets to see Pat Metheny next month ... seen him many times, but this is the first time with the brilliant British pianist Gwilym Simcock, and Linda Oh on bass + regular drummer Antonio Sanchez. Really looking forward to this. Anyone else going?

    I am seeing them at Warwick on the 9th, but also have a ticket for the Barbican (with parking) the following evening (Friday, 10th). I am not able to get to that one, so if anyone wants to buy the ticket off, please PM me. They are also appearing in Hull, Dublin and Belfast.

    (Could the mods make this a 'sticky', please?)

    I can’t add a new or upcoming concert, but I can tell you about a great experience that I had years ago. I was living and working in Toronto, Canada. I had discovered jazz and had a part time job selling HiFi in a nearby town. I had been demonstrating Chesky Music CDs and really enjoyed New York Reunion by McCoy Tyner as well as John Pizzarelli’s My Blue Heaven albums.

    I decided to see if either of them ever get to a nearby jazz club and that week McCoy Tyner was playing at the Bermuda Onion on Bloor Street in Toronto. I talked my friend Howard into coming with me and we got there early enough to sit at the table closest to McCoy! Sat there all night absolutely taken with the stellar performance.

    This was back in 1991 or 1992 and I can still remember the shivers that I got as I was gobsmacked at their ability. What a concert!

    Well ... I hadn't realised just how massive this festival is. The venue is truly huge (essentially a national exhibition centre), with some stages in arena-sized rooms, holding many thousands, featuring big-draw r'n'b stars like Anita Baker. The 'pop' acts draw a younger audience, so there is a good mix of people at the festival, many seemingly there to soak up the atmosphere and eat from the many sellers of exotic foods, etc.
    Fortunately the smaller rooms had some good jazz, although the huge crowds passing through the buildings make it a bit of a challenge for newbie's to locate, and get to, the next gig.
    All in all, it's at the opposite end of the scale to our British local jazz festivals ... basically, a huge, professional commercial operation.
