Notes:
The first of 2 shows scheduled in Israel:
The other one is tomorrow (05/05) at the Binyamina Amphipark.
Attendancy was very good, the club was crowded.
For the 3rd time I had the privilege to see Al and his excellent group.
At first I planned to take my Zoom H1 and tape it myself, but surprisingly it was scheduled for a radio broadcast.
Looking back it might've been a better idea, since the broadcast was ended abruptly, before the show ended.
Nevertheless, this is better than nothing and it's quite enjoyable if you concentrate on the positive parts.
The show itself was fantastic, the guys were all very focused and tight in their playing.
Al's comments and little jokes throughout the show add a bit of spice to it :-)
