"Watching Edgar Winter play reminds me of why I started playing and loving the blues in the first place. Just the pure soul of it.He reminds me of the kid in school that never had to study for the math exam. It just comes so naturally to him it's like he's always been playing.
This performance is from 1988 and features guest Leon Russell on
piano and vocals.Anytime you're featured as the primary performer in a concert,you'd better be good, and Edgar doesn't disappoint.
It's pure energy from the beginning as the band launches into the blues standard "Key to the Highway" and turns in classics like"Dixie Lullaby"(a Leon favorite),"Lady Blue","Fly Away" and
"Free Ride". The band does a good job supporting the two artists, but it's Edgar that really steals the show. The man can
The only flaw I can find here is that the sound could have been mixed a little clearer, but hey, why would you get rid of a classic Picasso because of a ding on the frame?
All in all it was a pleasant suprise from Edgar and Leon. I would recommend that any aspiring saxophonist listen to and absorb as much Edgar Winter as possible. You'd be hard pressed to find a better teacher."

"Being a 30 year fan of Leon and watching him perform from 60,000 to 600 people in concert, this concert is from his touring with Edgar during the late 80's . It is a Leon concert with Edgar not vice-versa . Not to say Edgar is not awesome also , however people should know the Master of Space and Time is The star!!!"
