Too bad the video quality is so bad.Hell of a band!
I remember when I was 14 or so, just getting started on drums, I found the "Feels Good To Me" LP in a second hand store. I thought - hey, the drummer fom Yes, that ought to be good. Boy, was it ever! That album also introduced me to Kenny Wheeler who became another favourite musician of mine.
BTW, while the video of the whole concert is gone from youtube, the separate songs are still all there. Search for "Bruford Rock goes to College".
Hsosdrum - I think you may have been at every concert I ever attending - or vice versa And I agee - this was a very good show... really loved that band.That band was SMOKING! I saw them live at The Roxy in '78. (Holdsworth had split and was replaced on guitar by "the unknown" John Clarke.) Absolutely amazing show. It was quite something to watch Jeff Berlin flawlessly negotiate all of this extremely difficult odd-metric stuff with the nonchalance of someone playing a medium 12/8 shuffle.
I was also at a Don Ellis show you played, in 1975 or 1976 at a club somewhere in North Hollywood or Studio City (not Donte's). I remember it was the first time I ever saw Ellis with only a single drummer, and after the show I wondered why he had ever bothered with multiple drummers. All the previous times he had Ralph Humphrey and Ron Dunn (and himself, but I prefer not to remember too much about Ellis at the drums).Hsosdrum - I think you may have been at every concert I ever attending - or vice versa And I agee - this was a very good show... really loved that band.
I saw them in Toronto at the El Mocambo when I was 16 (went by myself, since none of my friends were interested). I used my brother's ID to get in (he was 19, which was the drinking age, and driving licenses back then DIDN'T HAVE YOUR PHOTO!).They played a college bar here in Pittsburgh. Since my buddy and I were under twenty-one, we could not get in to see the show.
