    OT-Great evening

    I had the opportunity the other night to play with the fantastic vibraphonist Mike Mainieri, Steps Ahead founder. We had a great evening playing standards and a piece from Steps repertoire which was quite challenging... Mike is an incredible musician and one of the nicest persons I have met.

    Edit: a couple of mp3s from the concert:

    Cool Re: OT-Great evening

    I would have loved to have been there. Vibes and marimba are my favorites but too expensive for me. You don't happen to have a recording of your great evening?
    Thanks for sharing!

    hi Styxx, unfortunately nobody did a recording ot the concert, only some videos made by the audience. It's a pity because, as Mainieri kindly said to me, there was a magic that night that is not so common to find...

    No doubt! Too bad yet won't someone with video also have audio as well? Yes? No? Maybe? Not? Naturally that would depend on if one of you knew someone in the audience with a video cam in order to get the audio.

    Hi Styxx, i found a recording of the concert... unfortunately the guy was sitting close to the drummer so the drums, especially the kick, are above everything else. Here you have an afro-latin version of "footprints" and "come rain or come shine" as a ballad... Only 128k bitrate though, to keep the file size as low as possible.

    Man I was a jazz dj for a couple of years in college and I remember getting an advance copy of Steps Ahead's album: NYC. Man I played 'Get It' and Senegal Calling over and over.
