I saw Will Calhoun live, yesterday, in Brussels Belgium.
It was the final concert from the AZA-tour, supporting Will's new CD 'Native Lands'.
If you haven't got it yet, than now is a fine time to get it. It's nothing like Living Colour, but it shows another side of Will's craftmanship.

The concert was great, I'm no real jazzcat but I enjoyed every little moment of it.
The players al seemed to enjoy it too, although i spotted some signs of fatigue at the end of the show. As I mentioned it was the last concert of the tour, so I guess everybody got a bit tired.

For those who want a reference they played Afro Blue, Umoja, Pyramids, Dorita and I guess Native Lands.
All songs were thorougly spun out with everybody having his solo spot.

As a bassist myself, I really enjoyed Melvin Gibbs playing.

offcourse Will's solo performances really struck everyone down. There was an incredible drumsolo to feast your eyes and ears on. And it all goes so easy, it seems. Will keeps amazing me, everytime I see him play.

Unfortunately, I didn't get the opportunity to speak to the musicians afterwards.
I was eager to ask Will about the 'changes in Living Colour-world' Doug recently announced.

Both Will and Doug are in Brussels this week for the recording of a new Head>>Fake CD.
