Cool Set

Nice review Howard!
I've always been disappointed when listening to Jazz at Orchestral Hall, which is not to say I didn't enjoy the set, but the "mix" from my vantage point (4 row from front) didn't do any favors for Sco, Patittucci, and Erskine.
Is there a good section for listening to Jazz in the hall?
