The group made up for this fleeting short fall with Monroe's own "Fleetin Blues," a dynamic, energetic musical vessel that gave everyone in the band a chance to jam, raising the excitement level in the room. In turn, their beautiful rendition of Lee Morgan's "Ceora" provided a perfect ending to a concert that led to a well-deserved standing ovation from the enthusiastic gathering.
