|Great Limerick Music Venue|
Friedman particularly showed impressive virtuosity , so accomplished but not showy and there was a sense of musical rapport between the two that comes from a long period of playing together. Judge for yourself in their take on Johnny Mandel's classic 'Emily' which was included in the set list tonight. The amplification was unobtrusive as usual from sound man, Sean Harrold . There was a mix of age groups in the respectable but regrettably, not capacity house who listened intently to both sets. Musicians in the audience included Finnish singer Laura Hilska, guitarist Alan Colfer and drummer Bart Kiely.
A great night of live music. I am glad the duo had sunshine for their sightseeing trip to the Cliffs. Bravo Limerick Jazz !
