Saw McCoy Tyner Trio with Joe Lovano at the Sage, Gateshead last night. Depressingly the place was almost empty for such great musicians. Also the sound mix was not good - I was sitting behind the sound man and I could hear it was off so I hav no idea what he was doing. Tyner didn't look very well and was angry about something - either the piano or the sound or his hands. Lovano was amazing as was the bass player. The drummer played much too loud (he wasn't even in the PA according to the guy on the desk) and was good but his style was not to my taste. Some very fine music though.

I signed up to BookRabbit but I am not impressed. The interface is clunky and the "buy a book" thing is entirely in your face. Sure, it is about selling books, but do it by stealth, don't make it so blatant. They also need to Ajax it up a bit - it has a Web2.0 look but a Web 1.0 implementation.

Went to see the Mandolinquents at the Sage, Gateshead last night. Lovely playing, and very nice people (I had a chat with a couple of them) but there was something not quite right about it. It felt a little over rehearsed (particularly the comic banter) and everything was played as written - there didn't seem to be a place for any improvisation. A bit too much classical as well : I'd have liked to hear them do some jazz and folk pieces (which they do on their CDs of course). The audience was really rather surprising - there was only on eperson I knew there and only a couple of others I recognised. It felt like some kind of concert party.

Just back from the "Mali to Mississippi" show at the Sage, Gateshead. Supposedly about the banjo. Most disappointing, and, to be frank, really rather dull. Nowhere near enough banjo material.

I tried one of these today (with a guitar) - amazing sound for something so small. I need to try it with the mandolin though to see how it goes. Much the cheapest of the good acoustic amps at the moment.
