Oh man, Black Pumas at the Wiltern Friday night.  Just amazingly soulful.  

Opener was Reverend Baron who came off in solo format with some taped accompaniment as a very low key Chris Isaak.

This tight lineup of the band includes the two principals, two drummers, a keyboard player, a bassist and two dynamite backup singers.

This was essentially the setlist: https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/black-pumas/2024/fox-theater-oakland-ca-bac6596.html with "Dock of the Bay" subbed for "Angel" in the encores.

Lighting was very coordinated to the songs. Really on point.

All in all the Pumas provided 90 minutes of great music.  In a proper world these folks would be playing the Super Bowl.

Last night, celebrating the 30th Anniversary of The Wheel...

From our not favored seats, Rosanne Cash.

The Wheel's song reverted back to Rosanne after a mere 30 years, and she's calling this tour Reinventing the Wheel...

She did tell a funny story about her dad advising her about becoming a "country" singer.  He gave her a list of songs she ought to know in order to help her achieve that goal; the list had 100 songs on it...she was like 7 years old.

In honor of Freedom Day and the 30th anniversary of South Africa's first free elections, SF Jazz brought several South African musicians to town.  On Saturday night, we saw singer Melanie Scholtz and pianist Aaron Rimbui perform a tribute to Miriam Makeba.  Scholtz has a terrific voice and stage presence, and did Mama Africa proud.  Yesterday was one of the legends of SA jazz, saxophonist McCoy Mrubata.  N knew his music quite well, and I really enjoyed his playing plus that of his guitarist (who had a 7-string guitar--never seen one of those before).
