LCJO followup + Branford Comes to CT
I would have happily sat through another 60 minutes of music (the evening consisted of 2 50-minute sets) but that (and the fact there was no program with the names of musicians) was the only blemish. Wynton was a gracious emcee and his solos showed his wonderful range and sense of humor. A conservative program? Perhaps, but one filled with spirit and swing (bassist Carlos Henriques and drummer Ali Jackson deserve much praise for their playing.) My thanks to Bill King for the invite and the pleasant company.
