    How pathetic is that - a song from Mike Stern f***ed up by some kid playing the drums in his sitting room. In 'YouTube mode' this happens more and more. Either that or you get a bad cell phone recording of a live event. If that is the 'way to go' for, then I won't be hanging on to a subscription for very much longer. I pay to get the real thing, not amateur covers.

    Sounds like Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan in there. Could it be?

    Kontomanou returns for the buoyantly infectious groover “Street Rhyme,” which Mike says was inspired by some of the jump roping rhymes he remembers kids singing on the playground in his hometown of Washington D.C. “Those kind of jump rope rhymes had a soulful rhythm to them,” he recalls, “so that’s the kind of vibe we were after here -- just a cool, fun kind of groove tune. It’s a street rhyme with a little bit of a world music vibe from the Indian flavored thing that Arto puts on it. Elizabeth also sounds so great, almost like Tina Turner on this one. And Bob Malach kills on this tune.” So does Mike, whose own triumphant solo is marked by the kind of scorching abandon that has become a Stern trademark over the past 20 years.

    It is not good and it is not bad. It is something in between.
