since i was down in the “z” section, i was listening to this (back-to-back with some old madeleine peyroux… good mix, actually). ‘grateful c2d’ seeded it on dime in august 2012, and this show has been languishing at the far end of the alphabet ever since. but now, happily, re-encountered. go to her shows, buy her albums.
[update: i just got a couple of her cd’s, “until tomorrow” and “if you knew her”: very nice. and, which is a bit unusual, she writes a lot of her songs. as the liner notes to “until tomorrow” note, “jazz singers who produce original material are usually the exception rather than the rule“. and should be supported in particular.]
one thing that bugs me: when i lived in belgium and could get klara radio, i could never figure out when the concerts were playing (there’s me with no dutch!). opportunities missed, ah well. i will probably say the same about korea (though k-pop concerts are maybe more likely than jazz…?).
oh… i changed the picture on the cd cover, as i’d already used the picture for another cover. but both covers are in the .zip file, since i’d made the first one anyway.
