I'm partial to pianists, although I love watching anyone with talent. Randy Weston was great in Millenium Park, summer 2011! Patricia Barber is always great at Green Mill. Ditto for Chuchito Valdez and Chris Foreman of the Deep Blue Trio. I'm crazy about Erin McDougald - what a voice! Such a talent. She should be an international hit, but instead she's our Chicago secret. That's just wrong.
I haven't been to any that I didn't like (since they banned smoking, thank god) but The Green Mill is one that I especially like to visit as often as I can.
I love great music and friendly people. I've only had the pleasure of connecting with this group once so far, but Pierre does a great job and every fellow member I met was great and fun to be with. Thank you, Pierre!
Awesome as usual
