I agree with Savage Jaw, the audio quality is good but it has been recorded too quiet and it is difficult to understand the chat.  The first track 'Vanishing Act' is very quiet.  Sadly during track 2 'Call On Me' there is a drop in recording volume from 1:40-1:49.

To the person who recorded the concert, I thank you.  Shame about the sneeze at 3:22 during 'Loving The Alien' and the cough at the end.  However, nice explanation at the beginning that the crowd were shouting 'Lou' not 'Boo'.

Tibet House celebrated the Tibetan New Year the Year of the Water Sheep at its 13th annual benefit concert on Friday evening, February 28, at Carnegie Hall in New York City. The spectacular concert, organised and directed by composer-pianist Philip Glass, highlighted a star-studded cast that featured David Bowie, Laurie Anderson, Ray Davies, Angelique Kidjo, Ziggy Marley, Tsering Wangmo, Rufus Wainwright and others. The evening will continue with a festive buffet dinner party following the show.

 

Uma K. Thurman, Ethan Hawke and Alex von Furstenberg are honorary chairs for the benefit, which supports to a large extent the diverse cultural, educational and artistic activities of Tibet House.

David Bowie, who recently released "Heathen" and "The Best of Bowie" DVD and CD, exhibited drawings and original art work to the Dalai Lama in the "Why Are You Creative?" exhibition last November in Frankfurt, Germany.

Ray Davies, a founder of The Kinks rock band and among the most celebrated songwriters in the British music scene, composes rock operas.

Laurie Anderson, who combines music, video, storytelling and other elements to create performances of unusual power, has released seven albums, including "Big Science."

Singer Angelique Kidjo, who explores African and Brazilian musical themes, recently released her seventh album, "Black Ivory Soul."

Jamaican singer and guitarist Ziggy Marley, leader of the Melody Makers band, has been singing, writing and producing for that group for more than two decades.

Rufus Wainwright, one of the most celebrated creative forces to emerge in 1998, the year his eponymous debut album inspired Rolling Stone to name him Best New Artist.

Singer Tsering Wangmo is a second-generation exile Tibetan. She studied traditional Tibetan music, dance, and opera at the Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts. She lives in the San Francisco area and performs there frequently.
