Having been born in Bloomington, Indiana (on October 10, 1954), for Dave this show was a sort of homecoming and birthday party combined. It was apparent that he was fully charged this evening, and that both he and Eddie were sincere in their having gotten back together again. It was still early in the tour. I thoroughly enjoyed the recording.
Freezing cold out side under the clear sky. This whole weekend has been nothing but icy weather, the pine trees whitened under a coat of frost. The icy fog persisted the following morning, coating the truck windshield. Winter has arrived early.
Notes flying off his fingers
Pouring from his heart
Under the white hot spotlight
Maestro at his best
