It turned out that I was the only one in the audience, apart from my companion Mary-Anne, who had never heard of this group. Well, there are a lot of talented musicians out there, which is a part explanation and then again, music always takes a back seat to theatre for me. Accomplished, utterly at ease, in an engage-with-the-audience show, they are a total winner. It was a pleasure to watch the up and coming young stars of the future, Sweet as Swing soaking it all in. These Aria-winners who has James Morrison in their fan club, don’t need me to spruik for them. They play tonight at The Goodwood Institute again (tickets here) and then tomorrow night in a sellout at St Peter’s Cathedral. Wish I wasn’t missing that.
I’ve got a new CD in my collection: I need a permanent reminder of The Idea of North.
