Saturday, 6 Nov. 2004 / Festsaal Messe Basel
Al Jarreau stood on the stage in Basel with newly arranged «old» songs. It is the songs which seize the heart, which go straight to the gut and which tease the brain. Songs which were written by the creators of the so-called Great American Songbook: Gershwin, Porter et al. There wasn't any nostalgia that evening, but swing and groove!
