Lyle Lovett and His Large Band play the Ravinia Pavilion for a summer evening concert outside. The singer-songwriter's wise, witty lyrics and blend of folk, country, blues and jazz have earned him widespread critical acclaim, four Grammy Awards and more than four million album sales. A native Texan, Lovett has been a roundly respected star since his self-titled 1986 debut LP, which spawned the singles "Farther Down the Line" and "Cowboy Man." His hits since then have included "Give Back My Heart," "If I Had a Boat," "Don't Touch My Hat" and a cover of the classic "Stand by Your Man." Learn More

This presentation featured classical and non classsical musical instrumentation. The music was improvisational in that the conductor wrote a new musical language based upon what she wanted the musicians to do. This was about as 'far out' of a performance as I have witnessed. Unless one is a music academic and a revolutionary one at that, one may find it difficult to appreciate.
The music at times was too loud for the Martin Center - an outdoor venue may have been better.
Wouldn't do it again, even with complimentary tickets.
