I put together a short video of four Bireli live performances that are among my favorites. As a whole, I think they give a nice representation of the tremendous scope of knowledge and vocabulary that shape his playing.
He really epitomizes when you say somebody is in the league of their own. It took me awhile to "get" Bireli. One song that started changing things for me is Lullaby of Birdland from Gypsy Trio. It is beautiful, from the way he's embellishing the melody to his soloing it's a two minutes something masterpiece.
Yeah love those. Thanks. Anyone know what the pattern is he does over the E7 at 1:15 on Joseph Joseph? Always wanted to try to make heads or tails out of that one but shy away from trying to grok his stuff since it's way over my proverbial pay grade.
Oh and don't forget to include a bass solo.
It's the birolian mode.
@Bones correct me if I’m wrong, But it sounds to me like a descending Bb arpeggio, starting on F.
Naw, I think Buco got it!
Just kidding :-)
I slowed it way down and it got kinda distorted but does sound like a Bb arp ending on an open E?
