Wednesday night at the Beacon Theater brought the meeting that some expected to place across the river back in September, when the Max Weinberg Big Band played the Stone Pony. Max’s ensemble was the house band as Bruce Springsteen played the Stand Up for Heroes benefit last night in New York. He still performed just a handful of songs, as usual, but the team-up made for a very different, swingin’ performance than what Bruce has done previously at this annual event.
After a short intro from Jon Stewart and some praise from Springsteen for Tony Bennett (going on stage after him, said Bruce, was « like following all of Mount Rushmore »), they launched into the Seeger Sessions arrangement of « Open All Night, » featuring the full Big Band, with Max on drums, and surprise guest Roy Bittan on piano. After telling the requisite dirty joke, this being a New York Comedy Festival Event, Springteen and the band teamed up again for « Kitty’s Back, » a song that Max has been part of his Big Band’s repertoire, but a first here with Bruce. Roy stood out as well, tearing it up on some fleet-fingered solos.
Finally, Bruce introduced Patti Scialfa for an acoustic duet of « If I Should Fall Behind. » A live auction followed, Brian Williams serving as auctioneer as a bidding war ensued, and Bruce’s guitar (Max threw in his tie, as well) went for a whopping $140,000. Bruce hand-delivered the guitar, and the money raised — from the auction, and the evening as a whole — went to benefit the good work of the Bob Woodruff Foundation.
