What an evening. Parked at the Hollywood and Highland shuttle spot and got validated so parking and the shuttle cost $12 total. The shuttle is pretty easy once you find the bus itself--give yourself time OR walk up the street. What a concert. Pure...continued

The first two bands were boring. The Count Basie Orchestra made up for it. It was an ok night.

An energetic evening for all. My favorite was part was Arturo Sandoval's trumpet and big band. Lots of Latin Jazz lovers were there. I had never seen the Hollywood Bowl so packed.
