Concert promoting “The Color of Love” at twocities gallery this Friday
We’re big fans of the music Steve and Jasmine have done on this album, which we’ve had the privilege of listening to in pre-release form. All the music on there is fantastic, and it’s a surprise that such simple instrumentation can still create the range of sounds they do on this recording. But also, as much as we dig the album, hearing their live performance of the music is sublime. Perhaps it’s because one can see how the music is affecting other listeners, which makes it affect yourself even more!
And of course, every concert we’ve been to at twocities gallery has been great. This Shanghaiist would even venture to say it is personally my favorite venue in town to play at, because everyone is there just to hear the music, and it’s not formal and uptight like a concert hall. Nearly every other venue in town that has regular jazz is still mostly about drinking and socializing, with jazz as a sort of background to create an atmosphere. Having the audience’s devoted attention really makes the musicians give extra-special performances.
Friday, August 29 7:30pm – 9:30pm, free entry
twocities gallery, 50 Moganshan Lu, Building 0, 2nd floor
