Monday, 24 Oct. 1994 / Festsaal Messe Basel
Latin & Blues
Ladies Night in Basel! Although their music is different, these two women share something: love, worries, happiness and sorrow are dealt with in their songs and are delivered to the audience with full intensity. Even though Tania Maria was better known here in Switzerland, the blues and jazz singer Bridgewater was already a bigger name internationally. In the US, she is part of the exclusive circle of the five best jazz singers of time, being mentioned in the same breath as Ella Fitzgerald. It was an evening of jazz, blues and samba, as much as the heart desires, a delicacy for the eyes and the ears.
