Ethel & Kaki King – Winter Garden – June 24, 2014
The Ethel string quartet seem to be in it mostly for fun, not to say that they haven’t mastered both their instruments and the ensemble sensibility. So what better way to have fun than to team up with wide-ranging guitar whiz Kaki King. Here she seemed to be mostly working on getting the most lush sound she could, so it wasn’t like there was a great deal of dissonance. A good half of the program was created for this particular gig, so this seems to be a long-standing relationship.
