The Elling/Metropole gig at North Sea was by all accounts a wild success. I wasn’t able to make it out for the show but reports are good and the video is even better. My arrangement for Kurt of Norwegian Wood starts at 30:50 and as you will hear the orchestra played it with eclat and aplomb; and Kurt doesn’t sound too shabby either, per usual. The concert also featured the amazing Al Jarreau and Jon Hendricks, with Vince Mendoza conducting (and contributing some really beautiful arranging, again, per usual). Take a peek and enjoy the concert!
