Metro Special Edition feat. Randy Brecker & Dave Weckl

17.7.2008 >> Kirjurinluoto Arena

(US)
fusion & contemporary jazz, funk

Funkyn ja elokuvallisen fuusio-jazzin tähtien lempilapsi on hioutunut tiukaksi nipuksi lähes 15 vuotenaan kaikkien yhtyeen jäsenten tuottaessa materiaalia.

Metron perustivat kosketinsoittaja Mitchell Forman ja kitaristi Chuck Loeb, joista tuli läheisiä altisti Stan Getzin yhtyeessä 70-luvulla. Yhteinen haave toteutui kuitenkin vasta 1994, koska vienti oli kova molemmilla.

Formanin työnantajista mainittakoon Gerry Mulligan, Carla Bley, Astrud Gilberto ja Mahavishnu Orchestra. Loeb on soittanut mm. Ray Barreton, Wayne Shorterin, Hubert Lawsin kanssa ja Steps Aheadissa. Molemmilla on takanaan myös soololevyjä.

Muut metronomit edustavat samaa kovaksi keitettyä linjaa: trumpetissa Randy Brecker (Brecker Bros, BS&T, J. Pastorius), saksofonissa Eric Marienthal (C. Corea, S. Wonder, B. Bacharach), bassossa Gerald Veasley (J. Zawinul) ja rummuissa Dave Weckl (Corea, Brecker Bros). Metro on julkaissut kuusi albumia, uusimpana Express Formanin Marsis-merkillä.
