A New Edition of the World Saxophone Quartet at the Israel Festival [cached]

Lake's son, drummer Gene Lake, was replaced by the young Lee Pearson.

The addition of Jamaaladeen Tacuma and Lee Pearson, who have joined the WSQ before in performances of the Hendrix tribute, pushed the WSQ into funkier realms.Tacuma produced steady, heavy grooves and Pearson, who mastered his playing with hip-hop acts such as Snoop Dogg and Lauryn Hill, turned out a crowd-pleaser when he performed during "If 6 were 9" with one stick on his head,then with his right hand behind his back, his left hand behind his back, and finally with both hands behind his back.Luckily he did not tried to replicate Hendrix's playing with his teeth.His childish enthusiasm replaced a much-needed sense of abstraction and modesty.

Belgrade Jazz Festival 2005 [cached]

The star of the night was definitely World Saxophone Quartet's drummer Lee Pearson.Apparently, Liebman's drummer Billy Hart lost his passport somewhere in Italy, so Pearson jumped in and blended with the band perfectly.

Definitely, the stars of the evening were drummer Lee Pearson and the legendary bassist Jamaaladeen Tacuma.Pearson had a special part within the programme with his rolicking solo performance that didn't stop at the drums, but went beyond, producing sounds with his sticks from objects all over the stage.He operated his drum sticks ecstatically, brightening the room with a beatific grin that may have reflected the satisfaction the band's performance was giving its listeners.

James Carter | Concerto for Saxophones | Review: James Carter Wows Fans at SF Jazz Fest [cached]

Saxophonist James Carter overshadowed everyone else onstage at the Herbst Theatre in San Francisco on Thursday night, during a San Francisco Jazz Festival show that also featured acclaimed organist John Medeski, That's not a knock on Medeski - nor on guitarist Adam Rogers, bassist Ralphe Armstrong or drummer Lee Pearson - as much as recognition of a jazz fact: It's near impossible to compete against Carter.

The ensemble was celebrating the recent CD "Heaven on Earth," a true all-star effort led by Carter and featuring Medeski, Rogers, bassist Christian McBride and drummer Joey Baron, Nearly all the selections performed during the almost 2-hour show hailed from "Heaven on Earth," and, indeed, managed to live up to the album's title, Unfortunately, McBride and Baron couldn't make it to the SFJAZZ show, but Armstrong and Pearson proved to be suitable substitutes.
