In an courtyard tonight in Haarlem, Holland – there’s finally internet connection enough to upload a video from Allison Crowe’s “Heavy Graces” tour! Plenty more images – and, with any luck, more video – from the latest chapter in the musical story of one of the modern greats:
Musician Allison Crowe performs her song "Disease" -- before a rocking audience at Germany's Jazzhaus Freiburg on Muttertag -- Mother's Day -- 2014. This tune and Crowe's wildly impassioned performances have drawn her comparison in Europe to innovative Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky -- and the famed German singer-songwriter ("Liedermacher"), composer, author, and actor, Konstantin Wecker.
This hand-captured video is, obviously, lo-fi in sound+ -- still, it captures some of the excitement of this night -- representative of Crowe's triumphant May 2014 "Heavy Graces" tour of Germany and Italy. The Canadian artist enraptured audiences who called her back for two or three encores each night.
At Jazzhaus - Allison Crowe takes to a stage that's hosted: Miles Davis, Lionel Hampton, Art Blakey, Bill Evans, Sun Ra, Don Cherry, Archie Shepp, BB King, Jimmy Cliff, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Dianne Reeves, Maceo Parker, Betty Carter, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Billy Cobham, Terry Callier, John Mayall, Spencer Davis, Nigel Kennedy und mehr greats.
Vielen dank! Grazie mille! Thank you, everyone!
