joanna gave an excellent rundown of the concert, blow by blow, and it is hard to beat.
so here's it http://sabahsongs.wordpress.com/2012/04/15/jazz-duo-double-take-wins-sabah/
|first time we had a concert where we get 100% positive feedback!|
|a friend commented that mia sounds like sarah vaughan|
|the till is ringing at the CD counter|
there is an unspoken chemistry about roger and mia. it is like old friends, old partners having fun on stage. mia's presence is larger than life. you can't believe she is only 27 when she has the presence of someone 20 years older. the calmness, the confidence and the ease of which she carried herself on stage. it is the culmination of 12 years in the business, since she was a teenager at 15.
roger put a lot of thoughts into the program to avoid boredom and singularity. his michael jackson medley and the muppet "rainbow connection" easily won the crowd over. a friend, who came to watch for the first-time confessed that she had tears running down her cheek when roger reprised "the moon speaks for my heart" from "the jazzy sounds of teresa teng" concert repertoire.
at the end of the day, we witnessed how two genuine musicians make genuine music in the most simplest format. you really can ask for more, except for more songs in the encore. mia only did one song for encore, which was such a pity cos the crowd wanted more.
it is also the first time that we got a 100% positive feedback on our concert. amazing.
