By this point my second martini kicked in, affecting my handwriting, but I'm quite sure they played the brilliant take on "Kumbaya" that blows away all campfire memories of the tune. I also remember when Dick Oatts, channelling Coltrane on soprano, made "wailing" into an understatement. And I know they ended with "Blame it On My Youth," the kind of ballad you can slide into like a warm tub fragrant with lavender.

All told, a wonderful evening, and a must-have CD. And yes, I got caught in a traffic jam on the way home — it was construction rather than a would-be aerialist this time — but the trip was well worth it.
