Waves of shimmering notes crashed the Narrows stage in unbroken sets, save only for occasional quiet and beautiful eye of the storm interludes. Eric Johnson Mike Stern and their indomitable bass and drum section rocked and jazzed up the full Narrows house Tuesday night. Beauty and raw power charged from the stage with lightning fast arpeggios punctuated by wailing climaxes- it was the Mahavishnu Orchestra with Jimi Hendrix sitting in and John Schofield serving an occasional reminder to slow down and deliver an occasional sweet desert rose. A performance for the ages.
