The Ipswich Music Festival presentation of Jazz at the Movies gave us more than we bargained for.
Shows I’ll Never Forget
Toto just seems to get better with age – and Michael McDonald held his own.
Despite a recent illness, McCartney appeared trim, fit, and ready to rock.
Playing regularly at Scarfe’s Bar in London, they take ownership of the music.
Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl achieved a signature moment at Mountain Jam.
Emotions were running high in anticipation of this last pair of 2014 E Street shows. Tickets for the tiny Mohegan Sun Arena were a tough get. We felt lucky to be in the building.
Bootsy Collins came to North Carolina’s LEAF Festival to spread his gospel of funk.
We were sitting about 70 feet away and the amount of sound coming from that man’s horn … unamplified … was kind of scary. I don’t know how he does it.
Back to Back Bar, Bossier City, Louisiana: Sometimes, it’s the whole experience that will make a show you’ll never forget as opposed to just a fantastic performance on stage.
At Symphony Hall in Chicago: I have a bone to pick with Chicago bassist/vocalist Jason Scheff. Scheff is an excellent player and fine singer, having been with the band for almost 30 years. Unfortunately, he almost caused the death of my best friend Joe.
