Mainstage – CD

It happened one balmy but bright day in downtown Iowa City. It shouldn’t have. There was no champagne to speak of, just boysenberry smoothies. Audience members weren’t wallowing on plush leather, they perched on brittle lawn chairs. There were no blonde dames in evening gowns wearing too much lipstick, just fresh faced coeds in shorts and tubes. By all rights the groove shouldn’t have even been spotted, let alone struck with such a loud snap and then leveled for the wide-open road. But there it was and here it is.

Eddie Piccard Mainstage captures Eddie and some old friends on a perfect day, full front and center, breaking out of the cabalistic jazz world,if only for the ride of one long groove. And not only did he not melt….when it was all over, not one hair was out of place!
