Audacity for fade in/out
FOB within about 10 rows of stage slightly off center
My first album (LP) of Taj was Giant Step double album back in the early 70's. I have many albums/cd of his since watching him go through many changes/variations of his mucic. Last night I wished for and saw his return to his true roots as a blues guitar soloist roughly sixty years later. He played a variety of instruments; guitar, Nashville? (metalshell looks similar to a Dobro) banjo, 12 string ukelele and one tune on keyboard.
The man had the audience singing without his prompting on the very first tune- what do you say to that?
For the most part the audience was respectful, little talking, though I did have them come/go for their drinks so there will be a bit of phasing- maybe two or three times. Other than that a clean capture. Pretty much cleans out my bucket list for this year of captures.
If you need Audacity (free s/w) can resample for you.
Feel free to help with corrections/additionas to set list and I will change in the header above. NOT FOR SALE or RE-SALE, do not mp3 and post. Please support the artists as this is to only be used for memory sake.
