Terri's pick? The Thomas Chapin Trio does their take on the Beatle's Ticket to Ride at the North Sea Jazz Festival in 1995.
"This was one of his favorite encores. He knew it was a great way to end the show and would get the crowd stomping and yelling," says Terri.
"He only played the Ticket to Ride tune as an encore if the audience was hungry and wild enough to want more from an already satiated and give-all set, as the Trio was prone to do. Often in NY the more "staid" crowds rarely got this treat (which was a disappointment to me because I ALWAYS wanted to hear that raucous version of RIDE!), but in Europe, Japan and Canada, where there is no shame to shout, hoot and holler (and drink) during performances, they got this rocket-fueled encore and it drove everyone mad with ecstasy.
Drummer Mike Sarin said of the Ride performance, "'Ticket to Ride' was always fun for me. I enjoyed the audience reaction when they recognized the familiar melody—definitely something they were not expecting. In Thomas' arrangement, the A sections were fairly straightforward, but we played the bridge in a punk/thrash feel that younger audience members went nuts over."
