I loved this. I wasn't expecting much, but I should have known it would be awesome.
Brad Jones played . He helped lay down a killer groove. He had me captivated many times.
The piano was amazing. He also played organ for some songs. I don't think I knew him before that. His name is Frank Wilkins.
Don Byron and Pheeroen AkLaff were as great as I remember. Don played clarinet and sax. I especially love him on clarinet.
The first song was a great instrumental. It set the tone for the greatness of the show. All the rest had DK Dyson on vocals. She did the kind of vocals I like, deep and soulful.
I can't remember who Don said they were interpreting. I will have to find out because I want to look him up.
I really love these Jazz Standard gigs and how he interprets a different genre each time. I'll never doubt him again going in. Its always been great.
