Paul Simon's Concert in the Park

Paul_Simon_Concert_in_the_ParkOn August 15, 1991, ten years after his reunion concert with Art Garfunkel in New York City’s Central Park, Paul Simon brought his Born at The Right Time Tour to the same site for a free concert on The Great Lawn.

One of the largest crowds ever assembled in Central Park gathered to hear a retrospective mix of songs from the 12-time Grammy Award winner’s career, featuring favorites from Graceland and The Rhythm of The Saints along with classics such as “The Sound of Silence,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and “Still Crazy After All These Years.”

The 17-piece band — assembled from three countries — included New York session musicians (alert viewers may be able to spot jazz trumpeter Chris Botti among them) and the South African and Brazilian musicians who had played with him on his solo work.

Ten drummers from the Bahian drum ensemble Grupo Cultural OLODUM also joined in, making the evening an exhilarating musical and cultural event.
