Posted on: Saturday, September 19, 2009 11:38 AM by Nicole Gustas
The Jimmy Lyons Stage seemed hardly big enough to hold all the performers in Conrad Herwig's Latin Side All-Star Band with Special Guests Randy Brecker and Joe Lovano. Bold and brassy, this band filled the arena. Conrad Herwig's Latin Side All-Star Band, by Mike Rainey At first, like a stew that's just beginning to simmer, the various elements of the band were bright and beautiful but didn't quite meld together into a delicious whole. But just like that stew, the audience's patience was rewarded as the elements eventually combined to produce a top-notch performance.
