I remember the first time I heard the audience recordings from the performance the Philaharmonic back in September, 2009, because it was one of the rare moments when you’re chilling by yourself on a Sunday morning in front of your laptop and you stumble into a piece of or moment captured from the stage that gives you straight-up chills. When I skipped ahead promptly to hear about Trey put together “You Enjoy Myself” the symphony, I was more than pleased and grinned largely as I strained to listen through the recording hiss, which was easily overwhelmed when you hear the audience react to the “jam.” a masterful rendition of a song so many of us have only heard or wished to see in a dramatic juxtaposition from the setting in which the recording originated.

And this video posted today on YEMblog only further solidifies how hard this hit the audience that night:


They had everyone hanging ’til the very last second.
