Antonio Sanchez – Birdman Live Performance
Last night we saw Antonio Sanchez perform the Birdman score in front of the big(ish) screen.
I don’t have any photos of the event, but wanted to post some thoughts on an inspiring evening.
Sanchez was humble, thoughtful and funny as he opened the evening with the story of his Birdman experience – growing up in Mexico, coming to the States to study, eventually recording and touring with Pat Metheny, and finally, meeting director Alejandro González Iñárritu.
What a treat to see two of my favorite things – films and improvised music – and, a performance by an exceptional artist.
