A huge thank you to THN, Telluride Jazz Celebration and Todd A. and his staff at Telluride Jazz for being so welcoming and for the opportunity to be part of the media team for the three day Telluride Jazz Celebration. Casey and Eric and Dennis, too! You all made our time in Telluride a weekend to remember. We’ll be back!
Lisa Haley: A description of Lisa and her energy is somewhere in the dictionary and I am afraid it is listed under the combo definitions of firecracker, spitfire and cannonball. No singular word can describe what she and her electric blue fiddle bring to the stage for every second of every minute she and her band perform. Lisa’s duet with Taylor Hicks and The Little Memphis Blues Orchestra was a massive combination of fire, cannons shooting off and button-popping, foot-stomping fun. We stepped out in to the crowd for this duet because it had to be seen in it’s entirety as it unfolded up on the stage. Add to this the beautiful setting, the cool air and the crowded stage area and it becomes etched in your brain for the sheer joy it made us feel.
ENERGY, LOVE AND RESPECT, A musician’s code. You can feel it and see it in every move they make.
Thank you all for coming…….
….gonna tear the whole place down and I’ll be on my way…….TH
What a great weekend for Taylor to headline Telluride Jazz Celebration. It was a big event for him and his fans. We loved every minute of being in Colorado and seeing the sights and enjoying good music.
A recap with photos of the highlights of Telluride including photos of Taylor and others not seen to date will be up soon for those interested in prolonging the good times at Telluride!
