Re: Diana's father has died

Condolences to the family. Tough time of the year to lose a parent. Seems like an appropriate time to post this - a piece called Jimmie, from Diana's 1st album, written for her dad and piano teacher Jimmy Rowles: _glRrjf0kOY Here's the obituary: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/comoxvalleyecho/obitu...

Re: 'Painted From Memory' on Broadway

Just saw Burt in concert at Royal Festival Hall. No mention of either of the musicals but they did do God Give Me Strength.

Re: Elvis sings with Charlie Haden

This makes me awfully sad. I hadn't realized he was unwell. Was definitely one of the greats and will be missed.

Re: Elvis solo, Montréal Jazz Festival (CA), June 29, 2014

Can’t really find any of the stuff I saw on TV online except this CBC story (but that’s live from 11pm news so before EC came out for the encore). I have some soundcheck videos which I'll try to upload shortly. Also, someone posted this bit referred to earlier. There are some nice photos from both s...

Re: Elvis solo, Montréal Jazz Festival (CA), June 29, 2014

Diana and Elvis graced pretty much all the local newspaper covers today. Not surprising seeing as that concert brought downtown Montreal to a standstill (depending who you believe, 100-200,000 in the audience). I’ve definitely seen her play better shows, but you can’t beat that kind of atmosphere. L...

Re: Elvis solo, Montréal Jazz Festival (CA), June 29, 2014

Just watched Diana's 2-hr soundcheck/ rehearsal. Elvis was there and they did Ophelia, Whispering Pines and Subterranean Homesick Blues together (all regular tunes on Diana's setlists on this last tour). EC was having a really tough time with that last one! She sent him off to his own rehearsal with...

Walked by the press area earlier today & discovered Elvis is doing a press conference re. the Spirit Award at 14:30 on Sunday. No public access but I imagine they'll post excerpts at http://www.montrealjazzfest.tv. Diana's presser is at 2pm tomorrow.

Re: Elvis solo, Montréal Jazz Festival (CA), June 29, 2014

Me! Probably not staying until the end though because I want to see Diana at 9:30, and given that it's one of the flagship outdoor shows there is easily going to be 100,000+ people there and the crowds are going to start gathering around 7:30/8, so getting a decent spot at 9:30 will be impossible.

Re: Elvis Costello Solo Carnegie Hall June 24/25

Couldn't Call it Unexpected and Voice in the Dark were highlights for me. I wish he had done more tunes on keyboard...but with 38 songs and just under 3 hours, who can complain!

According to Twitter Steve Buscemi and Laurie Anderson were both there last night.
