Notes on the show:
I'm into jazz and always a[pprecoiated new and old classics. So when I heard Bruvbeck's group was to be at the Freihofer Jazz Fest, I jumped at the chance. They only had an hour to get in their set but the songs I could figure out were sizzling and at 87 years young, so was Dave! Randy Jones couldn't make ths show so his son Danny filled in on the drums and he was on fire! Sadly on track 2 (name anyone?) some old folks decided to sit right behind me and yack about almost anything under the sun (including Bobby's weight). I thought about giving them the silent shush but I didnt want to make enemies. Their yakking doesn't last too long. Either way, a great show and a very enthusiastic audience. Also, I must apologize for my loud clapping, but you have to give major props to the masters! If anyone wants to create artwork or improve upon what's here, feel free!
Enjoy this folks!
