Live Concert Photography: Bowlive 6: Soule Monde, Soulive, The Shady Horns, Chris Robinson and Special Guests
March 17, 2015
As I’ve mentioned in a previous photo post, if you’ve been following JOVM over the past few weeks, things have been incredibly busy, and as you can imagine, there will be quite a number of photo posts over the next week few weeks as I spend some time editing photos from shows. But back in March, I was at the unofficial home office, Brooklyn Bowl for what turned out to be 4 shows of Soulive’s Bowlive residency in mid-March. The first show featured the incredible jazz fusion trio teaming up with the Screaming Eagle of Soul himself, Charles Bradley – and it was an an incredible night that I’ll likely remember for the rest of my life. My second night of covering the Bowlive residency featured the experimental jazz and funk duo of Russ Lawton (drums) Ray Paczkowski (keyboard), best known as Soule Monde opening the night. and interestingly enough their sound channeled the likes of Medeski, Martin and Wood and Marco Benevento – in other words, it’s funky but mischievous; hypnotic and yet at times menacing. But even with their impressive set, the overall highlight of the night and perhaps the entire spring so far, was Soulive’s incredible set with Chris Robinson, which started with an incredible cover of an old Otis Redding song that my mother said, did the original justice – and then ended with an amazing cover of The Rolling Stones’ “Gimme Shelter.” Yes, yet another incredible night to remember.
Check out some photos of the show below.
