Mother's Day I was blessed to attend a concert featuring rhythm and blues and jazz singer Will Downing and urban jazz saxophonist Najee. Oh my what an evening. I had a terrific time. I didn't open the envelope that held my ticket until an hour before the concert. Low and behold, I had an orchestra seat in the second row. I was within an arm's reach of the stage. This was the first time in a looonnnngggg time that I didn't' spend Mother's Day fighting off a heavy sadness. Old folks really know how to party! Good thing there weren't any drinks flowing or that old school jam session would have lasted all night.
Please enjoy the photos. I apologize but they were all taken with my phone. I didn't think we would be able to take photogrtaphs in the show so I didn't bring in the Canon. Well we were allowed pictures but no video. I was able to nab a few quick snippets of both performances. I'll try and upload them if they are of decent quality. I haven't used my phone much for videos even though it has an HD camcorder.
Are you a fan of Will Downing? Is jazz a genre you listen to?
