Well, it was my birthday yesterday - 51 years old .

My Wife Joan surprised me with tickets to the
LA JAZZ FESTIVAL at the Greek Theater about 1/2 hour from where we live...




featuring Chaka Khan / Kem / Will Downing

I think we were the only white people there besides a few musicians and security staff, but it was an amazing show - everyone stood and danced - between shows it was OLD SCHOOL DJ time - this was as much fun as the actual show !

-- as it was more 'our age' old school was the type of music i owned in College - Ohio Players, P-Funk...
Will Downing - like a lou rawls amazing low voice..

Kem - like Al Jarreau - really amazing.

And, is was a warm breezy evening - and I scored a sweet (close) parking spot!

It was a great birthday !
