It was a fine show. His voice seemed to be great in shape , not like the last time i saw him three yrs ago .He talked a fair amount between songs ,which i found amusing. The band was also great, bunch of young guys who had there chops.Overall a very enjoyable evening.
Leon Russell played on, produced, arranged, and wrote some of rock and roll’s most successful and important records. George Benson’s cover of “This Masquerade” written by Leon was the first song in music history to occupy the number one spot on the jazz, pop, and R&B charts. “This Masquerade” also won “Record of the Year” and a Grammy in 1976. He released five Gold Albums and had a hand in many other chart hits including “Superstar,” and a “A Song For You.”
Leon was instrumental in some of Joe Cocker’s biggest hits, including, perhaps, the defining song of Joe Cocker’s career, “Delta Lady,” written by Leon. The Carpenters struck gold with Leon’s song “Superstar,” Ray Charles covered “A Song For You,” and B.B. King covered “Hummingbird.” Leon Russell is pop music’s most anonymous big shot.
