These guys would have to be the "unexpected/delight/discovery" for me last night. I think Jack has been in town before - but this was the first time I heard him play. It was almost textbook. The sun was getting low in the sky. Warm, long shadows were cast across the waterfront. We just needed some nice chilled rock and roll with a country twang to complement the moment. Step in Jack Savoretti. And his very cool looking Bass player. Toes were tapping, crowds were smiling... the rest was history.
Since writing this blog i've now downloaded his latest record: Before the Storm. If there's another warm balmy afternoon in the country this year - I suggest you download, listen and 'while away' said afternoon. Even if there's not - download and listen anyway. It's very cool.
