I wasn’t sure I would be able to make it down for day three, but I couldn’t stay away. I arrived just in time to see legends Ron Carter and Pat Metheny in an intimate duo performance on the Pyramid Stage. Something very special happened there that I will never forget. Two great artists providing the City of Detroit with a musical gift.
This was followed by Charlie Haden’s Liberation Music Orchestra with conductor Carla Bley and bassist Steve Swallow. Amazing musicians performing as the sun set on another beautiful Jazz Festival Day.
