David Benoit at Tarrytown recap May 24, 2010

Posted by Mike C. in Jazz, Music, Personal, Photography, Travel.

Saturday night, my dad and I drove an hour (plus scattered delays) up to Tarrytown to see David Benoit perform at Tarrytown Music Hall.  It was the first time I’d seen David since December 2008 at IMAC, six months before it closed.

David B. was accompanied by David Hughes on the electric bass…

…and Jamey Tate on drums:

The set list began with four songs from David’s just-released “Earthglow” album, with a fifth song later in the show:
1. Will’s Chill
2. New Creation
3. Downtime
4. Sneaky As A Cat
5. Mountain Dance
6. Your Song
7. If I Were a Bell
8. Blue Rondo A La Turk


9. Cast Your Fate to the Wind
10. Kei’s Song
11. Every Step Of The Way
12. Waiting For Spring
13. Cabin Fever
14. Freedom At Midnight (The Schroeder Variations)
15. Beat Street
16 (ENCORE). Linus and Lucy

David talking to the audience between songs:

Afterward, there was a meet-and-greet next to the stage.  David and I briefly caught up with each other and had this picture taken:

It was great to see David B., David H., and Jamey again.  It was also nice to meet fellow fan Bonnie Schendell of SmoothViews in person.  (Bonnie interviewed David in this month’s SV issue.)

6/3 UPDATE: Bonnie reviewed the Tarrytown concert for the June issue of SmoothViews.
The first paragraph:

It’s always a great feeling of anticipation when you are going to hear new music from an artist played live for the first time, especially when the CD that has been in your rotation for several months has blown you away.  You hope and pray that hearing it from the stage will be just as powerful and emotional.  Well, I was not a bit disappointed by David Benoit.
