Yesterday I went along to a One Network gig with Jamiroquai, obviously not with, but you know, to watch. It was at the Mean Fiddler, which is a fairly small venue and he was brilliant. It was a lovely relaxed gig and sung all his hits, no doubt to promote to his greatest hits, which is available in all good record shops (and probably some poor ones too).
Singing the hits is a good thing and it meant JK subscribed to my ideal concert situation which is any artist you go and see should only sing their hits and amusing covers. Now some may argue that this detracts from observing the inner artist and indeed if i’d actually bought the album i’d recognise the songs. I say no. In this iTunes world, we don’t have time to consume eight songs per album that are probably only fillers anyway.
