- Allan Holdsworth (guitar), Tony Levin (bass and Chapman Stick), Terry Bozzio (drums), and Pat Mastelotto (drums) at the Kuumbwa Jazz Center in Santa Cruz Wednesday, January 6. (Yup, you read right, two drummers.) I haven't seen Allan since he toured a couple of years ago with Alan Pasqua, Jimmy Haslip, and Chad Wackerman... the last time I saw Pat Maselotto was with King Crimson in 2003, I think... and I have not seen Terry Bozzio since he played with Jeff Beck in 1994 or so... and I have not seen Tony Levin since saw him with the mid-eighties version of King Crimson. I'm really curious what they will cook up for us... I suspect it will be highly improvisational.
- Robben Ford (guitar) with Michael Landau (guitar), Jimmy Haslip (bass), and Gary Novak (drums) at Yoshi's in Oakland on Thursday, January 14. This will be the third time I've seen Robben since last February, each time in a different context.
