A Satisfying Show!

The LifeJazz event at 21C on Sunday May 6 was a satisfying show thanks to a wonderful audience and great support from fans old and new!

We began the show with several jazz standards beginning with a fast samba version of  Jobim’s Chega De Saudade,now called “No More Blues:after americanized jazz lyrics were written by jazz singer and famous scat man Jon Hendricks. The FluteDaddy  group lightly swung Dave Brubeck’s In Your Own Sweet Way and the audience really dug Jason Crowes’ bass solo.  After I read aloud the wonderful lyrics from Marilyn and Alan Bergman, Reggie Berg played a captivating two minute preface to Michel Legrand’s ballad You Must Believe In Spring and I followed with an alto flute solo. Folks loved it.

Thanks again to for the warm reception for my new compositions inspired by nature, art and life. You said you especially enjoyed the jazz waltz Isn’t This The Day and the hard swinging close of Gotta Go Go Go. It was also my great pleasure to premiere Wednesday Blue, the piece inspired by the art of  Suz Stovall who shed some beautiful tears and rewarded me with a wonderful hug.

Thanks again for being a wonderful audience!! Music has opened to me as never before and as I compose my new music I look forward and can say enthusiastically that my next concert, and the ones after that will each be the best of my life.

I have included some photos of the band provided by photographer and friend John Harder.  With a little luck I will be able to share some of the recordings with you too. If you missed this concert, please stayed tuned for the announcement of our Fall show, planned for September.

 

Be well and happy,

Joseph Liberti
