"I had been wishing for Melody Gardot to put out a new CD with new songs. But now I am wishing for a new CD with her past songs--LIVE!!!"
Great idea, Don. I posted a year and a half ago about her live concert in Portland. Much as I loved her two albums, _My One and Only Thrill_ especially, nothing could have prepared me--or anyone else in the audience--for that concert. It was in a small somewhat ratty theater (sorry Aladdin), and she and her band just stomped. I actually thought the string arrangements here and there on the albums were slightly overdone. The concert took everything in an entirely different and unpredictable direction.
