I was thinking of making Saturday a live concert day on ZaRecords – every one a different live show from the tubes, less talk, more music. Does that sound good? Let me know in the comments or on Facebook, whichever. In any case, to kick it off, I came across this wonderful pairing of musicians: the tremendous Raul Midón, an overwhelmingly awesome voice, and a remarkable guitar player, especially amazing since the man is blind, and the one and only Richard Bona, one of the most expressive and profoundly groovy bass players in the world, gifted with a tremendous voice, so amazing he can sit alongside Bobby McFerrin like it ain’t no thing.
I’ve seen Richard Bona live, in Dortmund, as a sort-of “yo, welcome” from Germany to me when I got there, in 2006. It was one of the best concerts I’ve ever experienced, and this live recording is every bit as scintillating and engaging. Check it out, and get you groove on people, it’s spring!
