The audience was quite vocal in its enthusiasm, and the musicians reciprocated with some of the finest and versatile jazz heard in town in this spring. People were humming and clapping along. The profits of this performance were again sent to New Orleans Musicians Clinic, and the sponsors listed below, all of whom are longtime sponsors in some way on RobertaOnTheArts.com, came through for each of the nine Piano-Plus events with generosity and good will. The musicians, as well, have all been previously reviewed, some several times, on RobertaOnTheArts.com and were chosen by this magazine for their charisma and talent. We wish to thank the all musicians and sponsors who made this exciting debut series possible.
