Larry Coryell concert
September 19, Sandy and I went to see Larry Coryell at the Dakota Bar and Grill in downtown Minneapolis with Victor Bailey on bass guitar and Lenny White on drums. This was an awesome show, with Larry playing some very new and radical stuff, often in heavier, rockier style. They did a fabulous version of Led Zep's "Black Dog", featuring a fantastic bass solo by Victor, and also a nice acoustic version of "Black Orpheus". I got Larry to sign my CD in the intermission and managed to find a table so we could stay on for the second show. I feel fortunate to have seen Larry again and also to have seen Larry Carlton earlier in the year. They are both masters of the guitar; no one can play like these guys.
