Karl,

I suggest posting this on the Chatterbox board. This board doesn't get nearly as many hits and fairly few responses.

whoa! I'm getting dizzy, the way this topic's bouncing around!

Let's hope tonight's concert, wth Russell Davies conducting Prokofiev 6 and Carter's Dialogues is one of the best.

Hi, karl. McCoy Tyner, Stanley Clarke, & Billy Cobham together at Yoshi's back on January 27. One for the books.

Best classical: John Williams, April 3.

I've admired all these guys since I was a kid, but had never seen them before. Worth the wait. I hadn't realized that Tyner plays Yoshi's for a couple of weeks every year. Guess it's a date.

Williams was impeccable. I've heard many of the greats, but never a solo guitar performance to top this for wit, musicality, and musicianship. Thank God it was good, for the same night Martha Argerich was across the street at Davies and it was awful to have to choose between them!
"Most men, including those at ease with problems of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth if it would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions which they have delighted in explaining to colleagues, which they have proudly taught to others, and which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabric of their lives." ~Leo Tolstoy

"It is the highest form of self-respect to admit our errors and mistakes and make amends for them. To make a mistake is only an error in judgment, but to adhere to it when it is discovered shows infirmity of character." ~Dale Turner

Hi David, I saw your comments on the Alexander Quartet. I wonder if you could elaborate a little bit. What kind of band are they?

Sure, Hermann. They're the home team, one of the Bay Area's finest string quartets (the St. Lawrence SQ at Stanford is very good, and the Kronos Qt surely needs no introduction). Here's their website: http://www.asq4.com/about.htm
