Saw the duo at The Stone on September 7. The show was really great. It took them a while to get going but once they did, it was a thing to see. There was a louder part that included John McLaughlin’s “Follow Your Heart” as well as Monk’s “Evidence.” Other parts may have been other tunes I couldn’t recognize but a good bulk of it was improvised.
It was really hot in there too. After a longer break about 3/4 of the way through the set, Bill looked a little worse for wear. I wasn’t sure he wanted to continue. But he did and that part (after a little warm-up or ramping-up) got to be pretty great as well.
All in all it was a great show! Joey Baron is a joy to watch.
