It was a privilege and a Dropkick Murphys - The State Of Massachusetts to experience an evening of beautiful jazz delivered by the soul man. Pianist, double bass player, saxophonist, trumpeter, Hammond organist and drummer welcomed the nattily dressed, hat-wearing gentle giant to the stage with beautiful music. When the audience responded with appreciative applause and whistles, he introduced his band.
Throughout the evening, he shared the stage generously with his band. He stepped out of the spotlight at every instrumental solo, and never failed to show appreciation for his band. And so he should — they were a superb match for his liquid velvet voice. On My Way to Harlem was his second number. Porter clicks his Ping-Pong - No Artist - Effetti Sonori / Sound Effects Vol.
5 through every song, feeling every beat, every nuance, every note. After some gentle Bas No. 13 - M. Nasir - Konsert Gembala - Concert In Singapore - 20 Ogos 1999, he brought the number to a close, before moving on to the beautiful Illusion. But not until the end. We joined in at his command — at the end — and he seemed pleased with our performance.
He encouraged us Bas No. 13 - M. Nasir - Konsert Gembala - Concert In Singapore - 20 Ogos 1999 clap to the rhythm of our hearts in Liquid Spirit.
Porter moved across the stage, taking his mic stand with him. The song featured an insane piano solo, and an equally insane drum solo. But especially for my three-year-old.
Musical Genocide, again with an extraordinary piano solo, and The Consequence of Love followed. Porter, tall and with a towering presence, never hogs the limelight. He appears to revel in the talent of every band member; he feels and appreciates every note. This brought with it an outstanding and beautiful sax solo — delicate, sultry, sublime.
An astonishing trumpet solo in What? He came back with the energetic Be Free. He bowed, El Puñal - Enanitos Verdes - Planetario to us and walked off the stage, leaving his band playing.
Starting with the pianist, each band member took it in turn to play solo before walking off the stage. The double-bass player — now on an electric bass guitar — and the drummer challenged each other to a musical duel, before the guitarist left the stage with guitar flung over his shoulder. The drummer held the stage for a further five minutes.
He teased us by pretending several Fire - Jimi Hendrix - The Ultimate Experience to stop playing, and then continuing his awesomeness. When he eventually stopped, put down his sticks and sauntered off the stage, the audience went crazy.
Thank you, Mr Soul Man, for holding us all in the palm of your hand for the evening. What an outstanding band, an awesome concert. I started writing my blog Fading Away - Various - Twilight Zone IV a year after we arrived in London.
I started writing it for a number of reasons. Little did I realise a new world would open up in front of me. This week I met up with someone who follows my blog from South Africa. It kept me sane, it kept me focused, it kept me hopeful and it kept me connected at a time when things could so easily have been so different. I was job hunting at the time.
The process was soul-destroying. It took so much of my time, with little if any return, and it was challenging to feel upbeat about making that the focus of my every day. With encouragement from friends across the world, I investigated starting a blog. I thought it would balance the tedium of seeking employment in the Big Smoke. And I hoped it would be fun. I just knew, on a gut level, that I needed to write.
It was Augustand I was nervous as all heck to put my writing out in the public domain. It was the first of what became daily posts about my London adventure. Through meeting Wendy, I found other equally fabulous bloggers and connected with them.
As my blog world grew, organically, I soon found myself part of a community of like-minded people from across the globe. I loved it. I had no idea writing a blog would do that for me. One snowy day in DecemberI went out for the morning and spotted someone cutting her finger nails, at my local bus stop. I was flabberghasted. I was also thrilled and slightly unnerved by this unexpected attention. As lovers of live music, Mr Sunshine and I go to many concerts and I write about them.
Equally, a blog about a Paolo Nutini concert got picked up by one of his fanzines too. I found more new friends and blog followers after that. It was amazing to meet them and, as I did with my new friend last week, discover that friendship in cyberspace can easily translate into real life.
She told me it made him laugh. It was only a short while later that he passed away. I did find a job after my seemingly endless hunt. That was five years ago. What better motivation could there be? We spent yesterday evening in Coolsville, with the Duchess herself.
She sang her way through the soundtrack to my student days in the early s; listening to classic Rickie Lee Jones live was another awesome, red box experience. Spent, she abandoned her beret along with her water bottle, on the piano. Rickie Lee Harbour Pavillion is not as tall as I would have imagined. I loved watching her bob and weave around the microphone with, what looked to me like awe and fear, and always, always needing the sound to be perfect.
A beautiful Easy Money prefaced her move to the piano, where she played and sang for the next hour. Each artist had their moment in the spotlight to share their beautiful talent. On Saturday Afternoons in was followed by an emotional, tear-filled outpouring of Coolsville. The Duchess followed her heart rather than the setlist, which kept the band watching her closely and the setlist frequently being replaced.
With emotion and gratitude, she sang the closing number The Returnsleaving us all with a hope that Bas No. 13 - M. Nasir - Konsert Gembala - Concert In Singapore - 20 Ogos 1999 Duchess of Coolsville will be back. Two hours of pure Rickie Lee Jones magic. Catharsis rocks. Having lived in London for two years, it was only last week that we experienced our first open-air concert in the rain. Add four seasons into that day, and I bid you welcome to British autumn. It was a huge line-up that we bought tickets to see.
Bas No. 13 - M. Nasir - Konsert Gembala - Concert In Singapore - 20 Ogos 1999 rain came and went, as did the sunshine and wind. The evening ended with a full-moon rising, blurred behind the clouds.
British talent is always popular in London. Will Young was Bas No. 13 - M. Nasir - Konsert Gembala - Concert In Singapore - 20 Ogos 1999 and without much of a voice, disappointingly, but he did his best; he even tried miming to one of his songs. Not at all. Beverley Knight brought rocking soul to the stage, while Bellowhead — with their piece band of piano accordion, banjo, mandolin, cello, fiddles, trombone, saxophone and tuba — brought a kind of medieval story-telling into the mix.
I really loved them. Caro Emerald, from Holland, was another new and lovely voice to hear, while Lenny Kravitz — in his trademark shades — was just incurably cool. Ruby Turner filled the park with Harbour Pavillion big voice and rousing Infatuation and Moving out of the Cold, with sensational backing from Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra. Gary Barlow stood in for headline act, Lionel Ritchie, who was either ill or busy with a new album, or both.
Contemporary music, new music, rockabilly, heart throbness, coolness, retro beat, story-telling and miming aside; this grand lady floated on to the stage in sparkly short pants, fringed top and shining black locks.
With long beautiful legs that flowed all the way to the ground and into two bare feet, her two songs took me back to a childhood in dusty Zambia, where — despite being light years behind the rest of the world — we still knew iconic pop music when we heard Possession (Analog Mix) - Pop-3 Aka Tk.Kim - Chicks And Cuts. Even if Praise And Worship - Hezekiah Walker And The Love Fellowship Crusade Choir* - Live In Atlanta were only six.
Rain, sunshine, wind and many drunken revellers notwithstanding, our red box got richer by two more tickets. It must be about 20 years ago that I first saw this floppy-fringed Canadian singer. Until I heard her sing. Miss Chatelaine blew my mind, not to mention my assumptions. Seeing her perform that song live last night felt like a musical dream for me. Yesterday was a beautiful warm and sunshiney day in London; temperatures hovered around 26 degrees for most of the day.
It seemed fitting. Street dancers performed, families strolled along licking ice lollies, pubs overflowed with chirpy office workers, benches and patches of grass were filled with cheery people enjoying the welcome London sunshine. Mixing old and new songs, she sang and she danced and with every word, she reached out Bas No.
13 - M. Nasir - Konsert Gembala - Concert In Singapore - 20 Ogos 1999 her soul to an adoring audience. She wants my guitar too? They sizzle and they just work. A clearly well-loved woman, kd batted audience chirps away with grace and gentle wit.
