Poncho and his troop are well honed performers that deliver an enjoyable listening experience. The brass group, trombone, trumpet and sax delivered polished and well metered music. The timbales were well played and not overly expressed. I was not expecting a Tito Puentes. The bass player was predictable and was not overstated. It was nice to hear a piano and not a keyboard. The pianists setup could have revealed a bit more of the artist than just just back.
The music was mostly all of Ponchos's standards and for good reason. If it ain't broke don't fix it. The walk on trumpet player added a personnel touch to the show and I like that. He played one encore and I am sure played more if the audience would have been more into the music and not getting home to watch the news.
I just don't get that. My wife and I go ouy to catch a great show like this one and I am amazed at the number of duds that go out and just not into the music.
