For many live music lovers and frequent concert-goers, there’s always that one performance that was better than all the others. Maybe it was the first time you finally saw your all-time favorite artist up close and personal in a packed venue, or maybe it was a more intimate performance with a smaller audience and venue. For Larry Mantle, it was a night at a Chicago cocktail lounge called The Green Mill featuring jazz organist Tony Monaco and his group. Larry said “I've seen Miles [Davis], Ella [Fitzgerald], Dizzy [Gillespie], Carmen McRae, Sarah Vaughn, Ray Charles, Freddie Hubbard, etc. It was a night with a lesser-known organist from Ohio that provided my  ‘Elton John levitating-like’ experience.’”
