The Imagine Project @ Carnegie Hall 6/24/10

I love how Herbie keeps mixing it up and keeps it fresh. It was so great to see Tal Wilkenfeld again. She sang a bit as well as play that kickass bass. There was lots of singing and it was all done quite well. All singers were great. The other keyboard player had an amazing voice.

From what I gather, this band is about reimagining some great favorite songs. Songs like Imagine and Exodus. They just finished the album last week. It was fabulous.

I couldn't believe it when I saw in the program that Derek and Susan were special guests. They did the last dong before the Chameleon encore, which Derek played on. In both songs, Derek and Herbie did some call and response with each other. It was already great, bit it went up a few more notches with Derek and Susan.

It was a great show and a very special night.
