Rudess and Wilson perform Even Less

by Jordan Rudess • 80,855 views

While out on tour opening for Blackfield as a solo artist ion the west coast, I had the pleasure of having my good friend Steven WIlson join me on stage and sing his beautiful song Even Less. Here...

Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater) Steve Wilson (Porcupine Tree)

Those embellishments by Rudess don't add anything to an already great song.

This is such a stupid fucking comment. No, Chopin doesn't overdo it obviously, because listening to Chopin pieces is listening to original pieces by Chopin. Jordan Rudess is playing Steven Wilson's music in this case. Does he embellish? Yes. Is it so much of a bad thing? Possibly, possibly not. It all depends where you come from and has nothing to do with 'educating yourself,' it all comes down to TASTE. Personally, I find Wilson's simpler piano arrangements suit the song better.

Two "heavy wheights" of prog for sure. Steven is a genius and Rudess is perhaps the best living pianist in the world.

Can't Jordan stop playing these fast string of notes that have no meaning whatsoever. Seems just like a bad habit.

Sounds great. I'm a big fan of both musicians and I think this is a great song for them to collaborate on. The guitar's a bit quiet though.

that piano part adds so much to this song

@BrandoWRX I feel the same way.. In my opinion he overplayed it

Is it possible you will be doing something like this with Petrucci again? An Evening With John Petrucci & Jordan Rudess was mind blowing!

But in fairness, he did a good job on Insurgentes and Grace for Drowning mostly because he cut out all the silly speed runs. Deform to Form a Star was good because of how minimalistic his playing was there.

@BrandoWRX I was happy with the arrangement... I'm getting a little tired of Barbieri's constant soundscape stuff.

:/ this shit sucks. Rudess would never fit in porcupine tree.

I liked this video before it even started.

@djkikko because, i like porcupine tree because they are very simple, when you hear this and jordan rudess doing all that crazy things......well, but that is my opinion, i know there are many people who love that.

Well, if this song had not the same vocals, I would never say that it's Even Less... It's almost another song [except from the main part after chorus on the keyboards], but...

Is Steven using Hughes&Kettner Amps now? I thought he used 'Bad Cats'.
Report spam or abuse
@MrMarcioCanedo He doesn't put any crap in DT's songs. And just because Barbieri only plays 1 chord every ten seconds doesn't mean Rudess has to do the same thing. Just enjoy it for what it is.

@grayson75 Gavin isn't in Blackfield, so he probably wouldn't fly to the US just to play a show :) Although.. I'm sure we wouldn't mind!

Steven Wilson, continuing to play the guitar parts despite there being no sound at all. profesionalism!

am i the only one who gives a crap about the lyrics and only pays attention to the keyboards??

@JCRUDESS Jordan, who makes better keyboards; Roland or Tomy? I know that Tomy makes small pink ones that you can buy in Argos for 30 smackers...sounds like the better deal.

Remember that this was a Jordan Rudess set and not a Porcupine Tree show, so Jordan had the right to mess around with the arrangement really.

The guitar!!!!! it si no sound with it ¬¬

Now play the full gigantic version :3 Love this. Hope there's more Rudess piano on the new Dream Theater album. Also, can't wait for Steve's new solo album! 2 of my favorite musicians :3

Guys, Jordan's a classically trained piano player. Of course he's gonna add the embellishments. He can do it pretty damn well too, I might add.

@Fredoki26 Is there something wrong with your ears? These are two of the gods of prog... and that's all you can say? If you don't like Steven Wilson, you don't like music...

I like this arrangement. I'm a huge P-Tree/SW fan and though I have never been a fan of Dream Theaters songs (not their unquestionable ability as musicians), I went to their concert last week in FL and was most impressed with Rudess' playing. He has such a cool and calculated demeanor on stage and is a true pro. Nice to see this type of collaboration between an amazing songwriter and an amazing pianist.

I think they mean that he's overdoing it for this particular song. If he isn't embellishing a little here, then we'd have to say that Steven Wilson under-did it when composing the song. Rudess is an incredibly gifted pianist, though. I personally don't think he's overdoing it here.
Report spam or abuse
@TheGlassDot Abou t Kissin: Agreed! He's an unexplainable exception but he is classical pianist and I'm talking about Rudess as a Prog Rock pianist like he is in DT! =D
