How would you have handled the distraction.
YouTube - Chet Baker LIVE Almost Blue HD
The guitar player broke the #1 rule of a back up musician "Don't try to overshadow the solo". Chet did pretty good by not loosing where he was in the song. He carries enough clout to be able to make a rebuke on stage. I think I would have tried to motion to him to cool it a little.
Chet still has a beautiful voice.
Thanks for the clip
He would get so into the moment of a song, he couldn't stand anything taking away from the melody. It's funny because his personal life was a wreck and totally inconsistent, but when he was singing it had to be perfect. It's a shame with the all the drug use, he was only about 57 here but looked and acted 77. His lungs and air support suffered as a result.
Looked to me like he was complaining about the feedback, not the guitar player. They both looked in the same direction (to the sound guy?) when it happened...
gb, I totally thought he was reprimanding the gtr player! ha. But what you say makes sense because he takes the mic off the stand later and walks away from the monitor.
I also think it was directed at the soundman and believe the guitar player was not in the same vibe as Chet and was over playing.
If you listen carefully, you hear the feed-back creeping in each time that Chet reacts. Great guitar and singing. Thanks.
after the feedback Chat says "Don't play with it while I'm singing!"
Then it happens again and he gets up and moves away from monitors/speakers.
Very good guitar work.
Nothing wrong with that guitar playing at all... definitely was directed toward the feedback.
