Mike Stern@Yoshi's

Peter and I caught these guys at Yoshi's yesterday. Here's my take on the performance:
  1. Mike Stern's music is really quite uninteresting.
  2. Dennis Chambers can bang a drum alright, but doesn't know the meaning of subtlety. He should take a lesson or two from Brian Blade.
  3. Victor Wooten is probably the most accomplished electric bassist I've ever seen. His solo was the highlight of the evening.
Overall, both Peter and I came away with the impression that the performance wasn't as interesting musically as it was technically. Still, after good sushi, and much hot sake, one can have fun listening to just about anything.
