A Trip to Motown

with the Cincinnati Pops

Dan performed with the Pops last night at Riverbend – the place I used to work when I was old enough to pour beer. It was a fine summer job, especially whenever Jimmy Buffet came through town and super-drunk folks wearing zany hats would tip well.

Enough about that, the Pops concert was great. And though I’m not sure how “A Trip to Motown” would include two selections from Flashdance, I can’t complain hearing “What a Feeling” fully orchestrated. Irene Cara would be pleased. (The other selection was Love Them which the Pops have previously recorded. If you have iTunes, here’s a sample)

Music of Stevie Wonder, Otis Redding, and a new arrangement of “Birdland” rounded out the first half before The Contours took over the second.

Weather was unexpectedly good, I fear this implies more summer heat is on the way.
