Words later. Here are three images (photo credit: Roger Thomas) from last night at the Barbican.
(Above) You’ve got him Roger. That’s a happy Charlie Haden, man.
(Middle) Haden watching on as Ernie Watts soars, roars in altissimo.
(Below)The Gretchen Parlato freestage, with Kendrick Scott on drums. A palpable but quiet buzz among the musicians, who turned out in unprecedented force. But the sense, perhaps, that the buzz is soon going to get a lot louder.
