Saturday January 19, 2013 / 8:00pmMonterey Jazz Festival On Tour 55th Anniversary
Rear Side Orchestra
How was your experience?
This is a great show , my first Monterey Jazz festival show ! Bringing it to Berkeleys Zellerbach Hall was even a greater idea ! It sold out to a well intended audience of the young and old music lovers . It was great to see a lot of of Cal students in attendance ! I feel better already knowing that this Great American music are in great hands and has a future for all the world over ! The show opened with Miss Dee Dee Bridgewater and on bass Mr. Christian McBride singing a song from Miss Eleanora Fagan Be my son-in-law better known as Miss Billie Holiday ! The rest of evening would honor Bay Area 's own Benny Green on piano and Ambrose Akinmusire on trumpet . On sax was Chris Potter and drums Lewis Evans Who would trade off solos which would be a great evening of Jazz ! Miss Dee Dee would only leave them wanting more which sounds like a great plug for a solo performance in future ! The encore would be a tribute to the late Great Dave Brubreck ! So all in all under three hours with a 20 minute break a great evening and night in Berkley ! D.J. Julius Perkins
