What a show it was!!! The best Iâ€™ve seen in years and I even thought I saw a good one in Lemoore, California in August. But this one was outstanding. 14 songs and at least some of them were rather surprising (to me at least). Jerry was in excellent spirit and joking throughout the concert. Even though at one time he was complaining about the lights, who â€śburn him into the groundâ€ť and later on he was â€śthreaten" the guy on the light â€śto get some help from audience to fix the problemâ€ť.
First, there was a French Blues Band playing for about 30 minutes or so. After that it was Blondell for a 3
song medley and then the band without Jimmy Rip. After 4 songs Jerry came on stage smoking a big white pipe. It was 9.38pm. 10.25pm end!
Again I have to say, it was a fabulous performance by Jerry. The piano play was tight and fast and it really
looked like he was enjoying himself. The audience liked it as well and was cheering throughout the concert. After the concert there wasnâ€™t any single soul who was not satisfied.
I saw smiling faces all over.
For a split-second I even thought he might give an encore, but he just forgot his pipe, so he went back to
the piano to get itâ€¦..(still dreaming, I know)
Just look at the song selection as well as the order of play, it should give everyone a hint how great this
night was. One guy was telling me that his voice sounded clearer tonight than in Toulouse. Canâ€™t confirm but it sure sounded good to me.
