Seated near me were three people, one a friend of a friend, the other two total strangers who had never heard her before. As the evening unfolded their joy became increasingly palpable, radiant. I'm sure it was not lost on the musicians because I was hearing things I had never heard before and the basic material is all very familiar to me.
But the music is always new. The mix of people in the room is always new. I love live music plus audience.
