I am always blown away by the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. I have seen them a number of times, both in New Orleans as well as here in the SF Bay Area, and they never disappoint.

I went to the Blue Note in New York when I lived there and heard great music: George Benson, Mongo Santamaria, Michele Camillo, Tania Maria, Bob James, Tito Puente, etc., etc. There are 2 other concerts though that I remember as being outstanding, one was Al Jarreau in Central Park and the other was a celebration at the Beacon, with Miles Davis, Spyra Gyra, BB King and others. The Al Jarreau concert was in the summer and was really upbeat & fun dancing. The Beacon Theater concert was great because of all the fabulous music, and I got to meet BB King backstage; he was so down to earth and just really nice to chat with.

No contest: a recent Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra concert with the incomparable Wynton Marsalis in Washington, DC. The music and the musicmakers took my breath away!

Our Albuquerque public radio station has the most fantastic jazz and freeform programming ever...as well as in-house, live artists and interviews. During my few years in this area, I've had the very best jazz exposure/education by our local master jazz DJs and their exceptional playlists spanning many decades of jazz. Among my favs is Miles Davis' Kind of Blue... Heard it for the 1st time and was blown away.

I was lucky to see the late, great Max Roach presenting the 60th anniversary documentary for Blue Note Records in chicago at which time he performed a short, master class in drumming. It was sublime.

My favorite live jazz performance was several years ago in Boston Symphony Hall. The featured musician was Joe Sample, my all-time favorite male jazz artist.
