Great night for jazz piano with Ramsey Lewis Trio opening for Dave Brubeck Quartet
Brubeck entered stage right with no anouncement other than the dashing of the lights. I lost the opening 3-4 bars of Sunny Side waiting for my JB3 to go live.
Be advised this performance was recorded FOB center orchestra (Row P) under the balconyand this creates a lot of applause bounce back. I was afraid to raise my levels any higher for fear of too much ambient noise and or audio blow out during applause. There are a few very quiet parts to this performance especially the beautiful "Over The Rainbow".
I hope you enjoy this living legend just a week before is 86 birthday.
