Julia Messenger- a big talent.

I've wanted to go to Bennetts Lane Jazz Club for such a long time.  Saturday night was the big night.  Julia Messenger.  What a great artist to see there.  Not many singers can do an Edith Piaf song justice.  But Julia can. Je ne Regrette Rien.  What a belter.  Impressive vocal range and passion all rolled into one song.  Just a knockout really.  Sprinkled through her own material, she did lots of  old favourites to rapturous applause. When she sang Cry me a River at the end she nearly brought the house down. Happily, they were recording the performance for a CD so I'm hoping that will hit the market pretty soon. Oh and incidentally, I'll be keeping an eye on the  Bennetts Lane website from now on. What fun!

Bennetts Lane will be hosting Julia again in March. Check out their website to find out more.
