Morrison, wearing his iconic black Fedora and dark sunglasses, performed some his greatest tunes and demonstrated his powerful and dynamic vocal prowess to the audience. The audience hung on to every note. At times you could hear a pin drop in the Joint as he skatted and whispered out some of his vocals and then slowly and soulfully built them up into soaring powerful vocal deliveries. That brought the crowd on it’s feet and into full roaring applause.
