this is probably my favorite diana krall show.  super show, great (fm) recording.  this show was part of a week-long john coltrane tribute at the village vanguard, which must have been quite something (i need to see if i can get copies of more shows from that week!).  instead of being “one that i’ve been listening to in my car”, this is “one that i need to put in my car”.  or maybe not… would that do it justice?

i’ve enjoyed everything that i’ve heard by christian mcbride & inside straight.  i’ve included the comments from the seeder on dime (scooter123), below… i guess this makes me stodgy and fond of straight ahead jazz.  the latter, yes but not exclusively, and i’d like to think not the former (yet?).  anyway, this is a very good recording (fm) of a very nice show.

i’m worried about moving the many shows that i’ve downloaded from dime to seoul, korea, this summer.  thinking of squeezing everything i really want onto one 2-tb usb drive, with another as backup.  send one by air, one by sea? one by air, one in my luggage?  decisions decisions, if only the rest of the move is as difficult.

christian mcbride is a certified virtuoso on the stand up bass, having played with freddie hubbard, joe henderson, mccoy tyner, herbie hancock, pat metheny, diana krall, roy haynes, chick corea, john mclaughlin, wynton marsalis, hank jones, joshua redman, carly simon, sting, bruce hornsby, and james brown.  although generally considered a fusion bass player, in 2009, he was invited to play at new york’s famed vanguard club, a fairly stodgy club, and was politely told not to bring his “rock and roll band” with him.

this was the genesis of this group of back up musicians. the phrase “inside straight” refers to an “inside” groove and “straight” ahead jazz.  so if you are ready, for top knotch, straight ahead jazz, press the green enter  button and enjoy. if you like this one, i’ll up an audience of the inside straight  last week at a small west coast jazz club.
