Jazzwise, Disney Sucks

Argh!

Pianist Keith Jarrett was about to start the second number of his program Wednesday night at Walt Disney Concert Hall when he was distracted by a rumbling sound late arrivals rushing to their seats.

Frowning, he turned to his audience and asked, "Do you hear that? It must be the sound of ghost cartoon characters. Creaky boards aren't usually found in new concert halls."

Then, about to begin again, he paused a second time to add another comment. "I have news for the person who designed this room. The sound travels better this way." He pointed to indicate a direction from the audience to the stage.

This is bad news for Disney and good news for Royce Hall. Interestingly, I thought about what it would take to design a great jazz venue after having been to the Jazz Bakery the other night.
