This evening I was lucky enough to see Geri Allen with Terri Lyne Carrington and Esperanza Spalding at the Barbican (part of the London Jazz Festival) playing Wayne Shorter pieces mainly (the great man himself at 80 years old was due to play later).

My expectations were high because Geri Allen is one of the greatest living Jazz musicians (IMHO) but I was taken by surprise these three female musicians produced some of the very finest Jazz I have heard live.

A female drummer / percussionist? I have to say I have not previously any convincing female drummer but Terri Lyne Carrington is astonishing and more than the equal of some of the finest men drummers.

If you love jazz and get a chance to hear this line up grab it with both hands.

Also as an added bonus the sound quality was superb - all in all one of the finest live performances of jazz it has been my pleasure to be present at.

Cheers

Paul
