must be the best £3.50 I,ve ever spent. My wife &I saw Lou live in Las Vegas with the exact same band -easily the best live concert we had ever seen. This brought back such happy memories - what a voice!!! What a performer!!!
I've heard some quite unbelievable examples of breath control in singing - Sinatra Live in Paris - when you play it again and again trying to work out where he's taken a breath but Lou Rawls' version of Send in the Clowns has to be seen and heard to be believed. Now that's not a reason to buy a CD but when the artist in question has such great material and a wonderful God-given voice the effect is as stunning as the other reviewers rate this CD. At £3.00 this is an absolute steal if you're anything at all of a soul fan. BUY! BUY! BUY!
I have been a fan of Lou for years and I still can't believe that he was taken away from us 10 years ago, I bought this DVD and I am glad that I did, I sat and watched the 1st concert, ( still got another to watch ) and it was brilliant, it made me wish that I had been at that concert, The man is a legend and always will be in my book, I shall treasure this DVD and watch it over and over again,
Lou Rawls backed by four top class musicians performing before two enthusiastic jazz & R&B appreciating audiences. As this is a Jazz festival Lou sings many jazz and R&B than his more recognisable mainstream hits, nonetheless they are two very enjoyable concerts on the DVD. The audio CD is equally enjoyable.
I actually attended the First of these concerts at the NSJF.Both the concerts on this DVD are superb.To anyone who enjoys Lou Rawls, I say buy this Dvd.It is the best value for money you will ever see, at £2.99 I paid for it..His version of SEND IN THE CLOWNS has to be the best ever !!!
