Blues Explosion

One of the greatest joys of my life is listening to live music performances. I particularly love to listen to Jazz. So, when my very good friend Kristen Eubanks told me she was singing with the Columbus Jazz Orchestra and Bobby Floyd for the Season closer, I was ecstatic. Not only is Kristen an outstanding person, she is an amazing musician. I knew I was in for a treat.

Kristen and I have known each other since high school when we met at Fort Hayes School for the Performing Arts. She actually introduced me to my husband. She has amazing range in her performance style and can do anything from opera to blues, but the blues is where she lives. Last January, I heard her with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra and she did a version of "At Last" that brought tears to my eyes and gave me goosebumps.

Sadly, I have no pictures from last night because a certain young lady that I know was taking "artistic" photos with my digital camera and ran the batteries down. All I can tell you is that the weather was perfect, the band was hot and Kristen was mind-blowingly amazing as usual. If you live in Columbus, and you get the chance, go hear this woman.
