Joey Barron smiles
Last night I attended a midnight concert with Steve Kuhn Trio and Karin Krog in Molde. Steve Kuhn (piano), Davis Finck (b) and Joey Barron (dr) played beautiful versions of jazz standards, Karin Krog was everybody's "National Treasure", and they ended the concert with the song "Break of Day in Molde" (a world famous song here in Molde, based on Cara Bley's "Ida Lupino").
I just love to watch Joey Barron play the drums. I've seen him a couple of times before (with Bill Frisell), and the guy is just one big smile (and a great drummer)! I wouldn't mind more smiles on the jazz stages, thank you very much. You get the strange feeling, that Barron really wants to play for you.
