Ute Lemper – All That Jazz
I’ve obtained a smooth spot for the nice German cabaret singer Ute Lemper. She appeared at 54 Beneath in New York this week and though one in all her performances was livestreamed, it was streamed solely as soon as, on the time of the reside efficiency. That was 7pm NY time with no repeats so it was, with a begin time of midnight in all places in Europe and past, probably not sensible for the remainder of us.
As a substitute, particularly in case you are not acquainted with La Lemper, right here she is with a tongue-in-cheek efficiency of a Kander and Ebb tune from their musical, Chicago, which she has starred in a number of instances in a number of languages. It was filmed on a New York rooftop.
Again to that smooth spot. Lemper is the true factor – a real worldwide chanteuse with all of the glamour and pizzazz of her non secular predecessor however with one extra and vastly vital asset that Marlene Dietrich didn’t have – a way of humour. She will be able to interpret a lyric with class and wit. She will be able to sing the sexiest songs in essentially the most suggestive method, simply as Marlene did, however she makes certain that you just ‘get it’, that you recognize that she is aware of that every one this exaggerated ‘perspective’ is only for enjoyable.
