Lee Taylor and his quartet lit up the rain darkened evening with their performances. Clearly enjoying the evening as much as the audience, the first set established their camaraderie and excellent technique.
The quartet features friends that Lee has played with since the 1980's; Lewis Winn on guitar, “Milo” Robert L. Jaramillo on bass, and John Bartlit on drums.
During the second half of the evening we learned that several friends in the audience were performers as well and Lee invited them up to sing for us. So disappointed that I did not hear the introduction of this very hot mama...
whose vocalizations rivaled the late Linda Cotton.
But I did hear Patty's name and have found lots of information on her career online.
Next time I go to any one of these artist's performances, I will be sure to take some flowers from my garden, but here are some virtual ones for all of them...
Thyme, verbena, sunflowers from my garden, Alstroemeria lilies and pink something or other still pretty from a bouquet sent by my friend Pat, for my sisters Memorial service. For more lovely flowers I am linking to a blog friend, Jane's "Flowers in the House Party." Click on over to see what is blooming in gardens around the world.
