  3. Wow…….what a “venue”….what a landscape……..WHAT A SOUND!!!!!!
    Beautiful, great………Wynton sounding at his best (you could recognize his playing though not having any other info than the audio).
    I have another Ellis&Wynton; version of Mozartin (more recent than this one and unpluged) absolutely different (at least so it sounded to me)….. but as well AMAZING.
    It’s one of my favourite compositions…also, I think we’re still on Mozart’s year…well, what a jazzy and swinging homage to the genius; I’m sure he would have liked it.
    BTW, listened R.Veal at concert, less than one month ago, playing with Cassandra Wilson.
    What date was this Mount Fuji concert ?.
    Thanks for posting it!
