    Nope, this time I can't pick a fav. They all have the 'Gary signature'; I get a real sense of the atmosphere.

    Maybe it was the seating arrangements, which created a nearly unobstructed conduit from the crappy metal chairs to my SoCal tempered, thin-skinned, spine.

    PS- Typically, I haven't a reason to go to the beach when the temps are in the 50's (and I for much of my life I've lived within walking distance of the Pacific.)

    In the laboratory, yes it is. But in-situ, Not for this native Southern Californian, especially when you factor in metal chairs.

    Thanks Pelao. This year I've attend the Playboy Jazz festival (Hollywood Bowl) and the Brea Jazz Festival (street fair in downtown Brea), the experience from all three were very very different. This was very much a Bohemian, local only type of affair. MJF is 55 years old and the local love their Festival, big names ... backyard ambiance.
