Mike Stern

The Punch Brothers concert was a cool thing the other night, but earlier in the year I saw guitar virtuoso Mike Stern in Chicago playing a gig  at Columbia College and he blew me away with his improvisation and technical facility on the instrument. He was his usual brilliant self, laughing, playing his butt off and using that 1000 watt smile to charm the audience.

And just like the Punch Brothers concert, I really wanted to enjoy Mike’s playing and not be a photographer for a couple of hours. It worked for the most part but I couldn’t resist picking up my little Canon G9 point and shoot and grabbing these images with the available stage lighting.  Mike Stern played with Miles Davis. Mike Stern’s got chops.
