I saw Ray Charles, but I missed Miles and Coltrane, etc...
Ray was fantastic, 1975. I was one of 2 w.a.s.p.'s in the crowd.
He was really great.

Return to Forever back in the "Romantic Warrior" days, I believe, and at a different show...

....Count Basie and his Orchestra! Wow!

"The Great Guitars" of Herb Ellis, Joe Pass, and Charlie Byrd.

In HS stage band (or jazz band, as they call it now), we all thought Maynard Ferguson was the sh!t, and we saw his "Chameleon" era band a few times. We bugged our director to get the charts for us, and he did. Years later I got the MF album for old times' sake and was, um, disappointed at how it sounded. We sure loved it at the time, though!

My parents loved jazz, so I know there are more...

Saw Dave Brubeck with his boys my Senior Year of Undergrad College for Parents Weekend. It was special for me
to see him with my Dad, who had turned me on to Miles, JJ Johnson and Brubeck when I started on Trombone
in Grade School. We were both grinning ear to ear.

Saw Ray Charles twice and he made cry for joy both times. Diana Krall opened one of those shows.

lots of fusion guys. John McLaughlin is the reason I picked up electric guitar and I have seen him
with his various Fusion groups and Playing with Shakti.

Herbie Hancook and the Headhunters at the Tibetan Freedom Festival in DC.

Met Billy Cobham, Alphonzo Johnson, T and Jimmy Herring at Tower in-store appearence in Alexandria before
the first Birchmere Jazz is Dead show. Billy and Alphonzo signed my copy of "John McLauglin "Electric Guitarist"
and they both didn't know the other had played on that record. (different cuts) . Talked to Jimmy a bit also.

Just Saw Weather Report for the first time this summer at Merriweather. I had Seen Al Di Meola solo a few times before.
Larry Coryell and Eleventh House opened that show. I have seen him quite a few times aslo.

I have seen FourPlay with both Ritenour and Carlton.
I saw the tour that Ritenour and Carlton did at Carter Baron in DC.


Scott Henderson, Alan Holdsworth are a couple of great fusion players I've had the pleasure to see.

Lionel Hampton at the Capital Jazzfest at Merriweather, Dave Sanborn at same festival, Earl Klugh, Cassandra Wilson,
Sonny Rollins also there (different years).

Diane Reeves and Roberta Flack are both playing that festival this summer I may have to go to see them!


Wish I had seen Miles but it never happened.

I got to see a different version of "The Great Guitars"; Charlie Byrd, Barney Kessell and Martin Taylor. There are some wonderful lists here, I'm very envious of those who saw Jimmy Smith and Joe Henderson.... I had opportunities to see those two but never got round to it. As for my list:

Buddy Rich
Gerry Mulligan
Stan Getz
McCoy Tyner
Herbie Hancock
Pat Metheney
Tony Williams
Dave Holland
Roy Haynes
Jack DeJohnette
Jackie McLean
Gary Burton
Joe Lovano
Sonny Rollins
Illinois Jacquet
Nat Adderley
Jimmy Cobb
Dewey Redman
Joshua Redman

There's probably a few more that I can't remember right now. Obviously there's a few of these still around and if somebody with an interest in modern jazz hasn't seen McCoy Tyner, they should try to put that right at the earliest opportunity.

Sun Ra and Sonny Rollins pops to mind immediately. A lot of the fusion guys too, if that counts. John McLaughlin, Scott Henderson, Scofield. Al Di Meola. Michael Hedges (if that counts). I'm sure many others, but those are the first ones who come to mind.
