I was there, it was pretty cool! Musically, his shows are totally different with him on piano now. Less blues shuffles and loud guitars, with a lot more jazzy subtleties. Bob’s piano solos surprised me all night. If he could play that well the whole time, how did he make that organ sound so bad???

Bobby D. mixed it up righteously all night long and Leon Russell put on a powerfully moving headlining type set as well. It was church on Sunday for the encore- Amen
