Everything about this show fell into place smoothly. The music came together nicely and I didn't trip over the board or my tongue too much (and I didn't care when I did!).

Music-wise, the platter, as usual, featured plenty of jazz along with a wide variety of other treats. There was a definite "folky" vibe to the proceedings, as can be seen in the "Uncle" songs, "Rockport Sunday", and a few other things. There was also a tribute tune, "Sarala", in honor of Hank Jones, the last of the Jones brothers of jazz (along with Thad and Elvin), who passed away on May 16, 2010.
