Looking forward to seeing Warren Hill again. He's playing at the Danforth Music Hall. Anyone from here going?

Well, the show was last night. He was with Steve Oliver, who went first. I wasn't sure if I'd like him but he was good. Warren Hill was great as always. The way he can sing through his horn is inspiring and his sound and technique is just awesome. He played a couple of his early hits on soprano and there seemed to be a few technical glitches which made the show seem a little amateur. He squeaked a few times and fingered his reed a few times. Not sure if it was sound equipment or the horn. Still, he didn't miss a beat and he wailed. Encore was "Play That Funky Music" and it was great. All around a really enjoyable show and one of the most off-the-hook sax performers around. There was an old lady in the front row who he was talking to a few times because she was applauding everything he said. When they performed The Doors' tune (forgot name) he jumped off the stage and soloed right in front of her, and boy did he get sexy. It was really fun and the lady was going bonkers.

Not too many comments. No Warren Hill fans around? Just interested in what other people have to say...

I'm his huge fan, and since he's from Colorado, I got to see him couple times/year. I love his alto sound, and his altissimo technique is just absolutely amazing...

I have not seen Warren Hill perform live but I like the emotions and the passions that he put on his playing. Much like Sanborn,he can make his horn laugh or cry that he can lead you to an emotional journey just listening to his music and wish that you are sitting right in front of him while enjoying the way he makes that horn communicate to you.Looking forward to see him come back home here in Toronto.thanks.
