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.

Thats just feeling good and loving what you do. Imho live jazz performances are always better than studio dates. My two cents............

Yeah, James Carter is something else, man. I love the "Eastwood After Hours: Live At Carnegie Hall" concert. That "Straight, No Chaser/Now's The Time" featuring Redman and Carter is crazy hot. :blob:

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.
