Review by:
Jack Spelman

Of the three concerts in this series, this was my favorite. All of the guest artists appeared to be in love with Paulīs music as much as I am. There was no lull. There was an entire evening of magic. Paul played more than he had in the previous two parts of this series. I loved both the Capeman and Under African Skies but American Tunes was the soundtrack of my life. Every song was personal and touching in a way only Paul Simon can create. When Paul was onstage, whether singing or playing with the guest artists as they sang, it seemed he was truly appreciating it as much as I was. I was close and thought I saw a tear in Paulīs eye after a few of the collaborations. I know I had the same reaction more than once.
