My bass player's business partner is good friends with Gadd and Roth. We met up in the city at a Chinese restaurant and I got to chat with Arlen for quite a while. Very personable guy with lots of great stories. We went to the Iridium where Gadd was playing with the reunited L'Image (Steve, Tony Levin on bass, David Spinozza on guitar, Mike Mainieri on vibes, Warren Berhardt on keys). We sat with Steve's wife and got to meet the band. They played an incredible set of 70's-flavored melodic jazz. Just a great night all around.
