that was pretty shit all in all.
what was wrong with it?
none of the 'songs' went anywhere at all.
basically steve reid plays some jazzy drums which build and swell and change tempo and pretty impressive - he is obviously a great drummer, but then kieron hebdon spent the gig throwing repetive loops of samples over the top, which just didn't change into any other samples. so you had steve reid doing all this great drumming with this one loop playing over the top - he did have some pretty crazy effects and filters going on which were kind of interesting, but for someone who is supposed to be at the top of his game it just seemed incredibly lazy.
By the end EVERYONE in the venue was talking!
agreed. i had free tix so didn't complain but wouldn't have liked paying...
I had the same issue when I went to see Flower/Corsano Duo. Damn jazz musicians!
