I did go to the show last night at the Rivertown Jazz and Arts Festival. A friend called a few minutes before I was ready to head back, so I missed the first 15 minutes or so of the Randall Bramblett Band. It was a fine show, and I liked it a lot. It had that good Americana sound going on, with a tinge ofAllman-esque southern rock. It was the least jazzy band I’ve ever seen at the Jazz and Arts fest, but that didn’t mean it wasn’t really good. Bramblett did have a few really jazzy saxophone solos. During the course of the 75 minutes I saw, he predominantly played keyboards, but he also played guitar, harmonica, and sax.
There was much dancing, and I captured some footage of the show and the revelry with my CVS camcorder. If and when I can assemble that, I will publish in my videoblog (that hasn’t had anything new in over a year.) If you are in the Grand Strand and didn’t come, you missed it and it was free.
