Lyle is truly one of the best. From the large band stocked full of talent to the intimate stories behind certain songs and band members, he entertains while being down to earth and focused on writing great songs.
This was not only my favorite of his shows, it is now officially my favorite concert in the last 50 years. It was profoundly musical, the arrangements flowing naturally, the instrumentation densities and volumes changing constantly like the very best classical and jazz ensembles and the overall design of the event itself masterfully aesthetic. His humor is wry and sneakily hilarious and endearing and heartbreaking. His generosity and obvious love and admiration for each spectacular band member bathed the stage in a warmth that I believe only he can create. His utterly humanistic yearning is my new totem pole around which I’ll dance forever.
