Kevin Eubanks, New time, same result: “Lights, Camera, Action” was the Columbus Jazz opened the concert season of the Orchestra, hot, and great guest artist alike.

Orchestra’s artistic director Byron Stripling said tardy audience members tonight’s show starts at 7:30 pm instead of earlier 8 pm (Friday and Saturday remain unchanged). So if you go tonight, keep in mind that time, or you will miss Sanford Quincy Jones’ son and the subject.

Lad said the previous time was launched because some people said they have to get up early for work. Interestingly, however, still show last night ended at 10 pm

As for the guest artist, who was the jazz guitarist Kevin Eubanks, better known as the musical director of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno for 18 years. Eubanks said Leno was a great person and talk to him every month. After their current tour, Eubanks said he hopes to visit Leno on the show, and can work with him.

Eubanks, 53, was amazing, quick and nimble fingers that glided over the guitar. All played with the CJO Eubanks was great, whether it’s a brilliant, metallic interpretation of the speaker, a thin bright version of a child born or is a version of the song great job. The final ended in a duel between the Hammond B3 organ player Bobby Floyd and Eubanks to see who could get the most noticeable disagreement with the guest laughing and smiling.

In the end, a punch exchange.

Eubanks Stripling said he is a devotee of the late guitar great Wes Montgomery. Eubanks and upright bassist Chris Berg then made a blues duet for Wes, what really captured the essence of the game in Montgomery. The two men shook hands afterwards.

More fun followed with stunning Montgomery Four of six, Eubanks described as “a summer loaded”, and finally, Jack McDuff Rock Candy noisy.

According to the TV visibility Eubanks, the first half of the concert featured the music of thematic television.

Stripling said many composers and jazz musicians have written music that became television themes. What sold me was when the musicians of the orchestra began to add themselves well to family issues. Among the highlights were Dwight Adams (trumpet) and Pete Mills (saxophone), but again Floyd stole the show with his pianistic flights of fantasy on the theme of taxi to make the transition to the melancholy melody of M * A * S * H.

“If you remember this is not enough been watching television,” Stripling said before singing Movin ‘on Up, the theme song of The Jeffersons.
