Hambone, no way I would say
anything against Carlton! I mean he
was especially great when he was a
member of Crusaders!!! Those were
the days! But somehow for me, Loeb
is more suited for Fourplay’s type of

Time is on their side. The first Fourplay album in 1991 is a contemporary jazz classic and only gets better with age. Bali Run, youtube it to see the live version off the DVD with the original members...wow.

I agree,Loeb is a very talented guitarist. But don’t discount Larry Carlton while he was with the band. He’s not too shabby either. He sat in with Steely Dan a few nights this year, just like old days.

I think they are pretty cool fusion
band. I have 5 albums!
Chuck Loeb is a very good guitarist.
Actually he’s great. Recently I
discovered his "Metro" project with
Mitch Forman and was amazed with
their playing and compositions. There
are one - two Metheny like tunes on
every album of Metro!
Anyway, Chuck is the best replacement
after Ritenour left Fourplay!

They’re playing London in a few days (The Clapham Grand) but they clash other events in the London Jazz Festival. I’ve a feeling it won’t be a sellout. Cheers John

I´m afraid to say I completely missed the Boerderij gig (my 2 last ones there: Yellowjackets, Mike Stern). Hopefully I will be able to go to the next performance, provided there will be one.

a guilty pleasure indeed The Hague. Did you go to the concert, Zoetermeer is kind of in your backyard, isn’t it ?

Love em. Guilty pleasure, but nonetheless.

Yes, they are all great players and should not really be subject to the "smooth" criticism.
