Let’s get jazzy! I attended a sophisticated and delightful evening of soul and bossa nova jazz at the Renee and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall in Costa Mesa, CA on October 10th, 2015.
The venue alone was mature, sophisticated, clean and crisp and fit the vibe of the night by walking up to an outside black and white checkered dance floor playing familiar dance tunes in the term while waiting for show start time. The parking was seemless and the ticketline was a breeze.
The anticipation was appropriately building upon entering the elaborate and extravagant display and ambiance inside the concert hall. It was like walking into a new age concert hall with the nostalgic vibe of going back to the old classic days of vaulted music fragrance.
Ramsey Lewis, an American Soul jazz artist celebrating his 50 years of performing and Sergio Mendez brought the night together celebrating decades of their famous jazz styles and talents.
SCFTA brought together respected and famous jazz musicians. The attendants clapped, whistled and gave several standing ovations for almost every song. The presentation was seamless, the vibe and energy of the crowd was pleasing and made me want to get season tickets to future jazz concerts at SCFTA! Award winning and a two-thumbs up in my book!
