Gig Notes:

Jeff is not known as a guitar legend for nothing, everything he does looks effortless, but sounds sublime. I went along as a first-timer, so was blown away by the music and the amazing band, with Tal, Vinnie, and Jason all showing their worth throughout the evening. The night wasn't a sell-out, as there were still seats in the upper circle, though place was very busy. I bet a few folks will be kicking themselves to have missed this one.
The RCH is a cut above the usual gig haunts, the toilets even have doors :-) Also, not too many halls are air-conditioned, which was a bonus.

Recording notes and sound quality:

Recording position was in the middle of the stalls in a central position. Due to the lower volume in this venue I needed to boost the volume somewhat. I run the R09 at unity gain and the 9100 was up full. Posh people don't like their ears bleeding. :-) The only eq was to take the bass back just the tiniest bit, otherwise it was a pretty good sound from the venue, as you might expect.
There was the odd bit of chat near me - once or twice, but nothing bad, and the crowd were pretty reverential during the quiet parts. I hope you enjoy this recording.
