Scott Murawski’s notes on the Atlanta show (9/17)
We attended Mike’s show at the Variety Playhouse on 9/17 and had an absolute blast, that’s why it was so nice to see that the band had a great time too. While the first set was spectacular, the second set was just a monster. The sax player that appeared with the band added that certain intangible that launched the band into orbit. Here’s Scott’s take:
Wow. What a great show we had last night.
Well, before I get to that, we had a day off in Atlanta on Wednesday. We stayed at the Ritz Carlton, and we had a nice plate of fresh fruit on the desk when we checked in. Mike, Tom and I went to lunch with Colonel Bruce Hampton Ret. at an Asian restaurant. Bruce is hilarious. He’s got a zillion stories.
After a nap and dinner at a little diner around the corner from the hotel, Mike and I went to a little Indian restaurant where there was a jazz jam going on, and Todd and Tom were playing. There was a great sax player, Deji Coker Jr.
It was a nice, relaxing day off.
Yesterday, the show was at The Variety Playhouse which is in a very cool little neighborhood called Little Five Points. We had a great dinner beforehand and a coffee from Java Lords. (more…)
