Sign of Thyme

Yesterday, after finishing the process of watching The Waiting (Al-Entzar) – A Palestinian movie which was really great it was played at Zara Expo Auditorium – Grand Hyatt Amman-, we headed directly to the Royal Cultural Center, to watch Sign of Thyme band playing there album Like All People.
I really liked the concert, it was nice, it’s the first time for me to see this band, it’s a group of 5, Yacoub Abu Ghosh (Bass Guitar), Ahmad Barakat (Oud), Tareq Abu Kweik (Drums), Saeb Omari (Classical Guitar), and Ali Dabbagh (Percussion).
I really love this guy called Yacoub, he is the best Bass player I’ve ever seen from Jordan, he is even better than me. (Kidding :P, No body is better than me, Kidding Again :P), He really played A great Bass (I loved his 6 Strings Bass), but there was a little problems for him, I think that the Amplifier he used wasn’t for a Bass, it’s like when Playing Bass on a guitar amp, when he goes to low levels, the sound just gets dizzy, I hope that he can buy a new amp :). other thing When he went out on solos, well his solos were not the best. for me it felt like, I don’t have anything to say, I’m just trying to impress you, it was really empty.
Well the drummer (Tareq) and the percussionist (Ali) was great, they just come into there place, they did a great job. And the guitarist (Saeb) was so unlucky with the sound system, his playing was not heard, but he really played great, This Band really need a good sound engineer, Regarding the Oud player (Ahmad), well, I didn’t like it much, I don’t know, maybe because it’s hard for an Oud player to satisfy me, but I didn’t feel any sense in his playing, sorry man.
Other than that the concert was really great, I really loved there song Asma ( it’s not released yet 🙁 ), and I hated there version of Around Midnight, Maybe cause I heard Miles Davis Version.
Hope the best for Jordanian bands.
By the way, these guys also need to fix there website 😛
