I didn’t know there was such a thing as a funky a** jazz violinist. Damn! Mads Tolling put a hurtin’ on the crowd at The Rrazz Room last night! The Mads Tolling Quartet–including Mike Abraham (guitar), George Ban-Weiss (acoustic/electric bass), and Eric Garland (drums)–was a new experience for me, admittedly. But that’s whats so fantastic about The Rrazz Room. It’s the perfect place to get some musical education! Several times during the show, I closed my eyes and thought I was at Prince concert. Yep! They are that tight. Jazz, Jazz Fusion, Rock, Reggae…..again, I say Damn!
The fact that he’s a total hottie and a super nice guy didn’t hurt anything, either.
So, if you missed it last night. Shame on you! In the meantime, check out his site and order some music. Or drool over his pics.
