My most surprising was my cousin's wedding. She invited her two uncles up to sing with the wedding band. I whispered to my wife that this is gonna be painful. Well, these two guys were like a cross between Sinatra and Bobby Darin! They could swing like the best big band singers I've ever heard and both of them tore the roof off with "Fly Me to the Moon." Good life lesson in not prejudging.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention Little Village and Ry Cooder’s band from 2018.
Miles Davis 1985 with Bob Berg and Mike Stern was amazing
Bach Consortium of Japan under Suzuki in Nuremberg
Bruce Hornsby
So, so many. But Metheny and D’Angelo concerts in every case transcended.

Muddy Waters at the Grant St Dance Hall.
Lafayette LA. 1979? I shared a pitcher of beer with Pinetop Perkins and didn't know it was him until the band jumped up on stage!

One of the best was David Lindley y El Rayo-X at the Bottom Line in NYC in 1982 (I think).

Lindley was simply outrageously good, and the band cooked.

Their live album "At The Troubador" from 1970 is incredible.
