Patti Austin joins Lee Ritenour on last night of jazz

It is always a treat to spend an evening at the Dracula Club and the closing night is particularly fun as it coincides with Rolf Sach’s birthday and is the culmination of a month of great sounds and moods!

I had seen Dave and Don Grusin along with Lee Ritenour last year and they were on form as ever.

This time they had brought on some guests, Ernie Watts with his saxophone and Patti Austin with her powerful voice.

The best part of these events is the intimacy of the venue and the totally relaxed musicians who improvise, share a laugh and jam away in a way that makes you feel you are watching them rehearse in their country batch, rather than perform to a tightly packed and very appreciative audience!!
