Hot on the heels of their 2014 GRAMMY nomination, force-of-nature blues-rock vocalist Beth Hart and guitar hero Joe Bonamassa deliver BETH HART & JOE BONAMASSA - LIVE IN AMSTERDAM (DVD/Blu-ray/CD) - the very first live experience from one of music's most powerful female voices and one of the world's greatest guitar players. Against the backdrop of the beautiful, historic Koninklijk Theater Carre in Amsterdam, originally made famous by artists such as Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Billie Holiday, Tom Waits, Ray Charles, Donnie Hathaway, Tina Turner, Slackwax, Nina Simone and more, the performance wows with scorching soul covers from the duo's 2011 debut album DON'T EXPLAIN and 2013 follow-up SEESAW.

Joe and Beth work together brilliantly, they have a truly respectful and electrifying partnership, with Beth's phenomenal voice being given the space to take to limelight and Joe complimenting her with just the right amount of licks and fills, only opening up and demonstrating his world class guitar skills (and, boy, are they incredible) when it wouldn't take centre stage away from Ms. Hart. Add to that mix an excellent backing band and a tasteful horn section and you have a live show so good, you envy those who were able to be there. “Them There Eyes” provides a playful, light start, but as soon as the gritty strains of “Sinner's Prayer” strike up, the audience start to get what they've paid for; this is a perfect example of Hart and Bonamassa at their collaborative best.Read more ›
If you have any interest in blues or soul music, you need to hear this.
Ray Charles, Tom Waits, Bill Withers, Billie Holliday, Louis Armstrong, Al Kooper, Etta James and Aretha Franklin are some of the artists whose originally made these songs famous. Some of the tracks are well known, others obscure - but all allow Hart and Bonamassa plenty of room to make their mark.
From Hart's powerful vocals to Bonamassa's blistering solos there's a lot to enjoy here. Backed by the same band that featured on the records and augmented by a horn section, Live In Amsterdam is certainly an album that packs a punch. It's a slight shame that each track fades out, as this does disrupt the listening flow a little - but this is only a minor niggle. Recommended.
And then, strangely, most of the other tracks have been dealt with in a similar way, thus making the whole experience a might clinical!
Don't get me wrong, I know that there are plenty of people out there who don't want to hear applause, hoops and hollers, or God forbid, audience participation, but that is precisely what you get when you attend a live event, therefore to remove the audience from this recording seems to me to miss the point. However, the music certainly does more than match up and while both Beth and Joe prove just what masters of their craft they are, the rest of the band also prove just what a great set of musicians that they are too by ably accompanying the two featured artists to the max - brilliant, no less - but would you expect anything else?Read more ›
