The Chuck Berry bad concert thread prompted this. I've seen a number of elder statesmen, including Berry, who were just not very good. A couple were terrible and embarrassing. Was wondering who you've seen who still has it. And I don't mean "for their age" ... I mean can still do what they've always done and do it well. I saw Pharoah Sanders not that long ago ... a man in his mid-70s ... and he absolutely killed it. He played for more than an hour and a half and was even better than he was when I saw him in the 1970s. When he did a 20+ minute version of "My Favorite Things" I noticed he had the entire audience captivated. It was one of the most beautiful and soulful performances I've ever seen. Was so happy I was lucky enough to have attended this transcendent concert.
