Panamerican tango

Back at Bluesfest, I'm still biding my time waiting for Bettye Lavette. Federico Aubele sounded like an intriguing prospect, with his writeup suggesting a wide range of influences: Wes Montgomery, Jimmy Smith, Vinicius, Tom Jobim and his countryman Astor Piazzolla, as well as electronic artists Thievery Corporation. I thought his performance was long on the dreamy pop sound.

He probably should have had a shared billing with Natalia Clavier, he dueted with him and performed a couple of her own songs.

Rhythm section action! With Ashish Vyas and Jerry Busher!

Jerry! Who I last saw playing with French Toast at Zaphod's in March 2006.

A whole lotta singing.

And so on!

Melodica action!

Dig those shoes.

Quite pleasant, really.
