Andy Statman Trio: Old Brooklyn
2 tickets
Orchestra (Assigned on Arrival)

How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The seats were great! My wife loved it but I only liked it. The Trio had just flown in on a redeye from Brooklyn and they were tired. They were really good but I think they could have been better. They hadn't prepared their performance and were winging it. They are quite good musicians but to me Statman was just trying to get through it without taxing himself too much. Maybe he is too old to travel and play right away. Not enough true klezmer music for me but it was very enjoyable. So, what could have been an A+ was instead a B+.
