He continued, "Tortilla Soup got a call from Pacific Concert Group CEO Alan Beck, who asked us to join this show. One, I was very honored to be asked. But what got me the most was, I had grown up listening to these groups on the radio and now we were going to join themA cover band with no original song played on the radio ever!! Why us?? Alan Beck told me it was because we were liked. We were good and people were asking him to put us on the ticket, so he did. What an honor to play with such legends."
During the post eclipse week, Tortilla Soup with Tony Lindsay provided a polished night of classic music covering a rich range of genres to a receptive Yoshi's audience. Their spicy mix sparkled brightly this night and brought people from the San Francisco Bay Area and around the world together. This was a pretty hip legacy for the spirited band that convincingly demonstrated one of its founding principles: "We Play It All!" And they played it all well.
I love jazz because it represents FREEDOM!
I was first exposed to jazz in high school in Flower Mound, TX.
I met Chick Corea after having been a fan for many years!
The best show I ever attended was Chick Corea at Monterey Jazz Festival.
The first jazz record I bought was Herbie Hancock, Chameleon.
My advice to new listeners is keep an open mind!
