Captured live at Union Theater in  Madison, Wisconsin on Monday, November 15, 1976, this recording finds Evans at the top of his game.  The recording features performances that includes both contemporary compositions from that era, as well as his longstanding signature tunes.   You can hear cuts from On A Monday Evening on WCLK HD 2 Mainstream and on Serenade To The City,  Monday through Friday 10:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m.
