Live at Logen bar

On September 19th 2010, we performed at the Logen bar in Bergen for a small but enthusiastic crowd. The 2 sets featured music by Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter only.

Herbie Hancock’s Cantaloupe island got another chance, here in a version which features the Dm – Em/D changes on the bars of the Dm7.

Hancock’s Speak like a child was performed at a very slow pace. A beautiful tune, here in a version with Pia playing the flute on the theme. The piano solo parts on the Am7 – E7, seems to be ok for most parts, whereas the solos on the form are more of a challenge.

Maiden Voyage keeps occurring on the set lists. Here is a piano solo which builds quite nicely towards a conclusion featuring piano montuno like patterns. Interesting to compare the versions posted on this blog as there is now a small collection of verious attempts on this Hancock classic.
Finally, Shorter’s Fee fi fo fum sounds fairly relaxed here in a version with fairly good communication within the band. A long piano solo this time, with several piano techniques on display, including some Pettruciani inspired repetetive note excersises towards the end.
