Berks Jazz Fest 2017: Jim Brickman

In the early evening, I had the opportunity to see new age pianist Jim Brickman live for the very first time at the Miller's Centre for the Arts. I followed his career while he was on Windham Hill and later he got off my radar. He performed solo at a beautiful Steinway grand piano going through several of his hits, doing the vocals himself. In between songs he talked to the audience revealing details about his career and told stories behind particular songs, the last part of the show was dedicated to fan requests that were collected prior to the show. It was an entertaining show providing plenty of pretty melodies by a consummate pianist.
