After a standing ovation, the group delivered an encore of Wayne Shorter's "Footprints," one legend performing another legend's tune, and a suitable nightcap for a jazz session that was an island of musical perfection within the laconic urban heaviness that a city can be in mid-summer.

Personnel: Sonny Fortune: alto, soprano saxophone, flute; Michael Cochrane: piano; Joris Teepe, bass; Steve Johns: drums.

Set List: From Now On (Fortune); Charade (Mancini); It Ain't What It Was (Fortune); Awakening (Fortune); Invitation (Kaper); Waves of Dreams (Fortune); Come on in from the Rain (Willis); Footprints (Shorter).
