Lorn and Josh go to the Hollywood Bowl to check out Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and special guest Willie Nelson.
Thanks to Leah for the tip on this show taking place and hooking us up with tickets. Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra put on a fantastic show! One of the revelations I had after the show was that had I not come, I would have missed out, Willie Nelson or no. But Willie was a treat and got me to the show enjoying an evening of Jazz.
It was really cool hearing Willie sing with a Jazz band backing him. Wynton sure is a charismatic fellow and was a pleasure to be entertained by. The one down fall to this show, as with most Jazz concerts, was the crowd. The Jazz crowd is very pompous and unwelcoming to anyone who could possibly enjoy music besides Jazz. All and all I had a good time. -lorn
