I don't know who the guitarist was at the opening of Giant Steps but he was great.
Tough gig, playing on a catwalk in a full-on space suit, but he was into it, at one point breathing hard into the mic with delays to make spaceman effects, fogging up his helmet. Totally committed.
All of which was just part of the magic, which included moon cheese snacks and (pretty strong!) cocktails served in space-friendly foil containers with a straw. I accidentally squirted some out while fumbling my camera, but I soon got the hang of it.
I would make an excellent astronaut.
