Spent Friday evening at a Judy Collins concert at Santa Fe Station Casino for this week’s Friday Field Trip.
We continued our See ’em Before They’re Dead tour tonight. Boy, does Ms. Collins still have a great set of pipes. She’s singing up in the stratosphere and sounding clean and clear as she always has.
The evening was a nice mix of classic stuff and new material from her latest two albums. There were a few moments that were awkward from a sound perspective. The piano, guitar, and voice were a bit jumbled in the smallish, Chrome showroom. Frankly, for my money, she could leave the piano player at home and just perform solo. The musical director/keyboardist was great, but I just don’t think she needed him.
I’m already looking forward to the next time Judy Collins plays Vegas, cause I’ll be there!
