All That Jazz



One of my favorite things to point a TV camera at is live music, so you can imagine my delight when the incredible jazz ensemble Four For One treated yours truly to a private concert last night. Having rendezvoused with the quartet at their subterranean recording studio, I watched through the lens in awe as they tore through the intoxicating lilt of a lost John Coltrane refrain...again, and again, and again. Hey - it's TV, I need lots of takes!

Luckily, Matt Kendrick, John Wilson, Fred Pivetta, and the incomparable Wally West are not only top-flight musicians, but really fun guys to hang out with. When not gracing my microphones with their sonic stylings, they held a scintillating discourse, spewing forth on such widely varied topics as comic book alter-egos, global geopolitics and of course, Coltrane. Thanks guys, let me know where you're playing next and I'll come running. This time I won't even point hot lights at you and make you repeat the same thirty seconds of music until your muscles seize up. Promise!
