An audience of almost 3,000 clapped and cheered as Woody Allen and his jazz band gave their first-ever concert in Poland on Sunday. The filmmaker, playing the clarinet, was accompanied by his New Orleans Jazz Band for a performance of traditional jazz. "We will do our best to entertain you," Allen told the audience at Warsaw's biggest concert hall, Sala Kongresowa, at the beginning of the two-hour concert. Allen's solo parts, as well as those of other band members, were welcomed with applause. He received a standing ovation at the end. The 73-year-old Academy Award winner rarely performs in large venues or outside New York City, where he lives.
