A little review that i missed

September 15, 2008


I didn’t know people reviewed performances at OotB, so I missed this first time around. I get the feeling that they say nice things about everybody, but it’s still nice to hear that somebody was listening and cared enough to write a few words.

Al and Al Can you be too good? There’s a great interplay between this guitar and bass duo, melodies on both instruments intertwining, but it feels like they would be as proficient even if no-one was listening. Because of this, and the late hour, the audience starts to drift off. If they were to cock an ear, though, they’d be treated to a honey bass voice that’s used as a tenor, and beautiful flourishes and harmonics on guitar. They finish with ‘Trees’, which is a love song to the aforementioned. Not in that way, though. Well, I hope not. Anyway, its seriously impressive stuff – hope they come back.
