The last concert of Charlie’s tour was at the Cully Jazz Festival, on the edge of Lac Leman in Switzerland. This picture was taken outside our hotel in Lausanne, 5 minutes from Cully.
Charlie and Quartet West finished the tour with one of their best shows of the tour. The energy was propelled throughout the concert by Rodney Green, especially during his solo on “Child’s Play”. As usual, QW’s version of “What’ll I Do”, by Irving Berlin, featuring beautiful solos by both Ernie Watts and Alan Broadbent, left the audience wanting more. Charlie ended the tour with an incredibly emotional version of “Blue in Green” and gave more proof as to why he is so important in the world of music.
