Should have wrote in earlier. Saw the fellowship last night at Scullers. Incredible show. Brian blade was on fire playing soft and subtle one second and violently the next with occasional screams of joy! Incredible performance. We were reasl close, just a few feet from the stage, so very intimate setting. Jon Cowherd on piano was amazing. I heard they completed recording a new project but not sure when its coming out.

I’ve seen Brian 3 times now, twice with Wayne Shorter’s quartet and once with the FB. He definitely plays with a lot of feeling and emotion, very distinct style of percussion work.

No, nothing since MR, but he has a
new singer/songwriter AND new
Fellowship Band record in the works,
so keep your ears and eyes posted.

Has Brian had a new release since Mama Rosa?, which was very cool by the way. Mr Blade is a very diverse and extremely talented musician. Should be a great show.

Enjoy!Been lucky to see ’em twice in
the last couple years adn they really
were exceptional. Theres a new
record in the works, but when is a
question nobody in the Blade camp
seems able to answer, but when it
comes....it’ll be a smoker!

Yes, a very special group and Brian’s soulfulness is indeed also something special. Fellowship is a band that I’ve recommended to many non-jazz following friends as a jazz act they might enjoy.
