The Yellow Jackets with Mike Stern @ Rose Theater 4/30/10

Let me start by saying these guys are great players and I like them a lot. This is the wrong venue for jazz fusion, not to mention decade, and there should be places to hear this stuff. Le Poisson Rouge comes to mind. Mike played fast and furious, no bad or extra notes from him and Bob Mintzer is a wonderful foil. Love when they play the melodies together. Jimmy Haslip’s base playing pushes every one and Will Kennedy is a machine whew! Russell Ferante only plays what is perfect for the occasion and the entire effect is a terrific band and show.
