Thursday night last (01/11) it was Chris Botti at SF Jazz. (He said take pictures so I should not get in trouble for posting below.)
After that at home, it was "Judith" by Judy Collins and "The Band" by The Band played on the Dual 1219 / C22 / MC2505 / Advent system. But it was late and that session did not last long.
Right now the MAC1900 and one of the MR71s (whole-house audio?) are tuned to KFJC 89.7 for the "Norman Bates Memorial Soundtrack Show" which runs 9 to noon on Saturday mornings.
Tonight, Emanuel Ax will be "sitting in" with the SFSO at Davies Hall with MTT conducting. I'll be in the center section, six rows back (almost too close but I'm on the left side from audience point of view so I should see EA's keyboard clearly).
(Low-light, phone) pix from SF Jazz:
Chris dragged a 7-year-old out of the audience and had her play drums on one of the songs.

The last few weeks I have been listening to YouTube music into my system because of the variety and the ability to randomly follow the right hand column of suggested songs. I stumbled on George Duke and have stayed there quite awhile.
I was istening to Pat Metheny Group on Spotify Premium via Chromecast audio.

Teary eyed night. Celebrating the life of my Brother In Law. He passed six nights ago after a lung dissecting tfor cancer. He fought surgical complications for 60 days.
Regret we never got to listen The XR290s together. He was an accomplished bassist who toured the southern rock sccene in thr 70s and early eighties. Lameneting we can’t discuss his times crossingpaths withthe Allmans, warming up with Atlanta River Section, him jamming with BB King, and touring with Dave Mathews. Then missing his scheduled recording session in Nashville this March
His Funeral yesterday and a double rainbow over his regular Friday night Hotel band venue. Surely he ensured his band the show must go on. But he let them know hewas watching. Currently Jamming on Pandora Premium and leading the bass line. Reminiscing tonigh with the Little River Bandand a late 70s genre.
As a bittersweet memory he was going to pick up one of my MC2500s. He had sold his MC275s years back to pay off his dear wife’s medical bills from a lost battle with breast cancer. The music lives and so does his memory.
I’m so sorry for your loss. My condolences to you and your family. He must have been a wonderful gentleman. May he Rest In Peace.
Thanks Joe We have the gift music for his memory. An interesting funeral on how many people he influenced their music taste.
May we all leave such a footprint. Pay the gift forward.
Such a wonderful attitude and way to accept what has happened. We are all in a better place now.
Got around to listening to Pink Floyds Division Bell, Christmas Gift.
George Cromarty - Wind In The Heather- Acoustic guitar. Nicely done.
