Beth_Joe_Amsterdam_CD

The American dynamic duo comprising soulful blues singer BETH HART – interviewed by SJF in 2012 – and virtuoso fretboard meister, JOE BONAMASSA, have already turned heads with their two studio albums, 2011’s ‘Don’t Explain,’ and last year’s ‘See-Saw.’ Now the Grammy-nominated twosome is back with an incendiary live set, ‘Live In Amsterdam.’ The album is available as a 2-CD set and also via DVD and Blu-Ray and showcases the incredible synergy and musical chemistry that Hart and Bonomassa generate in a live setting.

Their set list includes blistering, blues-inflected retoolings of songs immortalised by the likes of Al Green, Bill Withers, Etta James, Ray Charles, Billie Holiday, Donny Hathaway – his Al Kooper-scribed ‘I Love You More Than You’ll Ever Know’ – Melody Gardot, and Ike & Tina Turner in addition to some striking self-penned material. The duo’s four-member band is augmented by a three-piece horn section, which brings a punchy and soulful dynamism to their performances.

Live In Amsterdam‘ was recorded at the Koninklijk Theater Carr√©, produced by Kevin Shirley and is released on the Provogue label on Monday March 24th.
