Despite a slow build up, a great gig and a great artist. The only bad thing about it: either the sound engineers or their geer. The loudspeakers were crackling ALL THE TIME! U better fix it guys!
Lots of technique (very talented musicians), but no soul at all. I did not feel anything. Moreover, I think her beautiful voice could shine with better songs. Lots of the songs were not very good, just tunes made out of two chords which they played ad infinitum. 8 minutes of two chords is just too much.
Het was een onvergetelijke avond . Dank U A B !!
het was een zeer goed concert gezien, goeie muzikanten, Zara heeft een prachtige stem !! 4sterren waard ..
Un concert 5 étoiles, elle va revenir bientôt en Belgique, à ne manquer sous aucun prétexte.
Zara McFarlane is one of the latest discoveries made by famous DJ/producer Gilles Peterson. She has received a remarkable amount of attention with the two albums to her name – ‘Until Tomorrow’ (’11) and the recent ‘If You Knew Her’ (’14) – and has rightly been applied with the label ‘promising British jazz talent’. That label includes the word (spiritual) jazz, but in her music you will also notice the influence of dub and reggae. So it's no surprise then that Zara McFarlane was born 30 years ago to a Jamaican family.
Her voice – warm and full of emotion – is often compared to a series of monuments like Cassandra Wilson or Jill Scott. Personally, she makes a point of not having her great idol Nina Simone forgotten, as well as Betty Carter and Sarah Vaughan. She already made a big impression at Jazz Middlheim in ’12 and just recently at Ghent Jazz too. Line up: Zara McFarlane (vocals) Peter Edwards (piano) Binker Golding (tenor saxophone) Max Luthert (contrabass) Moses Boyd (drums)
