Really, I've never seen anyone with as much stage presence and power as Joshua Redman other maybe Sonny Rollins. He's truly one of a kind; his live performances eclipse his album recordings by light years.
speaking of stage presence, has anyone ever seen a saxophonist with ridiculous stage presence? i remember once i was at a jam session in munich, germany and this one sax player leading the session (god, i wish i could remember his name but it was over 2 years ago when i saw him), would sometimes take a knee while he played his solo. then, when he'd finish a solo, he'd look like this guy...
he'd be like "yes! i won!" like it was a gameshow or something. i felt bad because i'd laugh at him sometimes because i couldn't contain myself, it just became too much to watch. well, because of that and i had been awake for almost 24 hours and was drunk so pretty much anything became funny. it wasn't like he was a terrible player but it just seemed ridiculous because he wasn't that great of a player either.
