Just got back from an intimate and fabulous Katie Melua show at Club Passim in Cambridge, MA. Wow. Brilliant. Absolutely stunning. Melua is a master class, her voice seamlessly floats into its upper register and back down into her smokey lower range. I got some poor quality images sans flash, which I will post this weekend. All in all, a fabulous performance! So glad I got to see her in an intimate setting, especially considering she can fill the O2 Arena in London. The equally brilliant David Berkeley opened, with Jordan Katz on banjo & horn. Great show. Great food. Great company. Now, I must get through the remainder of the week.
Melua’s new album “Pictures” is out everywhere now. Her live CD, Live at the O2 Arena is out on CD in the UK. Check out David Berkeley’s website or iTunes for his latest music.
In other news, just ordered the brilliant new Mandy Moore record on Amazon’s BlackBerry application yesterday – which I love. And on the complete opposite end of the musical spectrum, considering spending $70 + a new Girls Aloud Singles Boxed set, including remixes, b-sides and other rarities. Check out the meaty tracklisting here for all the goodies! Pre-order this baby now. It’s out in July.
So much music, so little time!
