Robbie Williams performed live in London to see in the New Year.
A poor lacklustre mediocre performance.
Not a patch on Frank Sinatra classic live at Royal Albert Hall where he had edge.
I had the pleasure of meeting Satomi Morimoto a couple of weeks ago.
I saw her at Teatro Timanfaya where she played jazz with ST Fusion, then a couple of days later when in a classical trio OpenART Ensemble she played music from the film Amelie and the modern tango of Astor Piazzolla.
She is an amazing jazz and classical pianist, and has an incredible voice.
Film is at her house, then centre of La Laguna.
Berlin Live sessions, Dorian performed by Agnes Obel (piano), with Anne Müller (cello) and Mika Posen (viola), from her album Aventine.
Christmas song from Jewelia.
Kaylee with Killard House Special School choir singing Leonard Cohen classic Hallelujah.
Kaylee has difficulty communicating with people, and yet, she can sing.
Kaylee Rodgers has autism and ADHD, but has been growing in confidence with every performance after starting to sing at the age of three.
Incredible voice and performance of Hallelujah.
Brings tears to the eyes.
No airplay on Radio 1.
Does anyone actually listen to the commercial crap on Radio 1?
Perverse to say the least to not only release but promote on tax-dodging iTunes and Amazon. Even worse to release on spotify. Lack of joined up thinking by those around Jeremy Corbyn.
Vida Loca performed by Satomi Morimoto and Virginia Guantanamera in concert at Entre2.
Satomi Morimoto is an amazing jazz and classical pianist and an opera singer.
I had the pleasure of meeting her a couple of weeks ago and attending two of her concerts.
Augusto Báez Trio en concierto en Teatro Timanfaya en Puerto de la Cruz en Tenerife.
I am no great fan of jazz, I find all sounds tbe same. But having said that, I have enjoyed jazz at Bambi Apartments and at Abaco, where some great musicians have played.
Tonight was beyond boring, it eas awful. It was mush that all sounded the same.
When David Gilmour plays, one can at least tell what he is playing. Not though tonight.
The sound quality was poor, as was the sound balance. It is not often a guitar drowns out the bass. It is usually the other way around.
A grave disappoint compared with ST Fusion of last week.
It is not often one finds a Japanese jazz pianist and vocalist in a jazz quartet.
Adding to the line up guys on bass and guitar and percussion.
Very avante gard.
Highlight was Japanese pianist Satomi Morimoto on piano and vocals with her own compositions.
Concert was part of Atlantic Jazz-Lab season at Teatro Timanfaya.
I was reminded of Canterbury Scene in the early 1970s.
Several albums on sale not only by ST Fusion but also by members of the quartet.
I picked up a copy of ST Fusion 3, which Satomi Morimoto kindly signed.
It is important they also release on bandcamp.
Flamenco Puro at Teatro Timanfaya en Puerto de la Cruz had a very hard act to follow.
Flamenco Puro succeeded. They were not better, they were different.
Well done Monica, theatre director, for once again putting on an excellent show.
Contrary to the name, this was not pure flamenco, more a musical performance. But then maybe flamenca is more than dance.
Started with a lone guitarist, followed by a singer, followed by another singer. They then provided the backing for the dancers who came on next.
Thrilling dancing, including stunning solo performances.
Dance went beyond classical flamenco. Was this modern flamenco?
Tonight was an extra performance. Thursday night will be last night.
Near to Christmas there will be special performance. Maybe February next year, a new season.
