2009 Ottawa Jazz Festival: Al Di Meola World Sinfonia '09 and Lenore Raphael Trio
Raphael has her own style, does not sound like anyone else out there today and although she has amazing technique and the ability to utilize the entire keyboard in her playing, she is not a show-off. What you get is the emotion and passion she feels for the music which is what makes it swing. And the near filled auditorium responded with a standing ovation and much cheering after the last number.
