    I was there, it was awesome
    herbie was really in very good shape, I think it’s the perfect kind of shows for people who discover jazz, because herbie manage to entertain with tunes not to complex, and give way enough music for musicians and jazz addicts.
    I think the jazz needs this balance to not be considered as snob music.
    I have no problem when they play lighter stuffs as long it’s beautifull.
    I hate people who complain that they also played a bit of rock. Jazz was always inspired by popular music, and it’s interesting to see how they are jazzified, and herbie is doing really well on this.
    I am sure he could jazzify a mettalica tune ^^
