Unfortunately the full effect of his singing does not come over that well in digital form, but live he is astounding.
Nice... first one I tried was a cover, "Just the Way You Are", and I like it!

He has an album of Billy Holiday covers.

We heard him sing it live in a small(ish) club and it sent shivers down your spine.

If you like him you'll like Michael Kawanuka

anyone gigging again?

Went to see Joanne Shaw Taylor at Coventry HMV Empire on Sat.
She's a Blues / Blues rock guitarist from Solihull, and a good friend of Joe Bonamassa.
Her latest album of Blues covers is excellent, and her live show is now very good indeed. She has found a confidence in both her singing and guitar playing that puts her up there with the best of the current crop.

King King (Scotish Blues band) was last month, George Benson and George Thorogood next month 8)

I am a big Music fan. I love my soundmachine. With 2 subwoofers :idea: :mrgreen: :idea:
"In the deepest notes of the harmony, in the ground bass, the will begins to objectify itself..." So some books you have to read 2 times to understand them, and some masterpieces of music you have to listen with 2 subwoofers :idea: for the ground bass :idea: I mentioned this years ago here in our forum. My favorite composer these days is Hans Zimmer. And the extra version of his album Interstellar contains a brilliant masterpiece of music. it's called Tick Tock. I want to write a whole chapter about it elsewhere. So for me, this is a spoiler. Since most people don't care, I'll spoil it for myself ;-)

You canwatch a lot of brilliant concerts. Live inPrague is still my favourite.

along those classical music- on a short timetrial - i prefer metallica, ACDC, Vollbeat, something like that, minimal or progressive techno, too. You never can get me with Volksmusik.

The Isle of Wight Festival is coming up again on 16-19 June.
This year I plan to see Muse, Kasabian, The Fratellis, Paul Heaton (Housemartins and Beautiful South), possibly Toyah, and most importantly for me, an IOW band called Jonjo, fronted by my daughter.
They played main stage last year after winning a competition for up-and-coming island bands, and they are playing again this year(not main stage this time).

I loves me a bit of Hans Zimmer so I'm with you on that one Claudius. Chevaliers de Sangreal is an incredible piece on it's own but when put together with the scene at the end of The Da Vinci Code ticks all my boxes.

Sounds like great festival this year Paul. But then any show would be great with flesh and blood in it :-)

Mr Zimmer is not for me guys, but of course his millions of fans can't all be wrong!

Festival was really good - only went on Saturday, as my daughter was playing twice that day - I know I am biased but I thought they did brilliantly :fsbgrin: :fsbgrin: .
The Fratelli's were very good, Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott were phenomenal(the best I've seen in the 5 years I have been coming to the festival) - watched some of the Proclaimers who aren't really my cup of tea, and saw some of Kasabian's set - they were having sound issues so it wasn't that clear, and they don't really have much stage presence so I was not as impressed as I was expecting to be - the weather was rubbish yesterday and I didn't fancy the line-up much so decided not to spend £80 just to see Muse from 200m away. :) :)
