Nippertown reader Leo Purvis weighs in with a list of live performances that he enjoyed during the past 12 months:

Alejandro Escovedo @ The Egg, Albany, September 30. Great songs… crack band… an emotional experience for me.

Incredible Casuals @ Valentine’s Music Hall, Albany, May 1. Coal Palace Kings warmed us up. The Casuals just rocked long and hard in a rare visit to Nippertown.

Tomasz Stanko @ Freihofer’s Jazz Fest @ SPAC, Saratoga Springs, June 26. The trumpet master sent me way out to the stratosphere as he played at the gazebo stage.

Bill Charlap & Renee Rosnes @ Skidmore College’s Zankel Music Hall, Saratoga Springs, July 6. Two of the best jazz piano masters – who are now married – facing and playing off each other. It was totally engaging, and the lit up trees backdrop enhanced the experience.
