We are overwhelmed with the love, reactions, stories and comments we’ve received from all of you in regards to Jazz Forum @ Home. We promise to stay connected with you and hope that you do the same. For now, we would like to share some of the best replies we received in regards to last week’s Patron Stories!
What was the most memorable Jazz show you have seen and what made it so special?
The Forest Hills Jazz Festival, held on September 17, 1988, was special due to the amount of talent at one venue. The pre-concert performers were: Noel Pointer, Lonnie Liston Smith, Jon Hendricks & Co, and Roseanne Vitro. The headliners were: Stan Getz, Grover Washington Jr, Chuck Mangione, Gato Barbieri, Freddie Hubbard, and Angela Bofill. I remember the day was rainy, but that did not dampen the spirits of the audience or performers. What a great show for only $22.50! Unfortunately, some of these musicians are no longer with us, but will live on in their music.
Thank you for your responses and we hope to hear from more people this week!
