Saw a great concert by the John Jorgenson Quintet last Sunday afternoon. John, lead, guitar, Jason Anick on violin, Doug Martin, rhythm guitar, Rick Reed, percussion and Simon Planting on the bass. The WICA auditorium was packed, the sound was excellent, and the music, superb and wonderful. For an encore the Quintet played a lovely rendition of Nuages without amplification - which was an amazing and lovely finale.
John expressed a bit of concern for the late night sessions at DjangoFest next September: the Edgecliff is shut down, apparently. There were for sale signs around the building. Hopefully it will have DjangoFest-friendly new owners soon.
There were quite a few DjangoFest regulars in the audience. It was great to have this treat in the middle of winter!
