Spin. Alison Moyet At Ronnie Scott's.
Alison Moyet had her audience in the palm of her hand last night at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in Soho. My amazing friend Paul bought me a ticket to the first night of Alison's Rare and Obscured tour, and wow, what a performance. With voice in fine form, Alison belted out unexpected tunes including Can't Say It Like I Mean It, Ski and Home throwing in cover versions of Momma Momma by Melanie, Almost Blue by Elvis Costello and others including a Kirsty MacColl track. Alison's perfectionism, warm banter and charming presence had us all in awe. She deserves far more attention than the dearth of forgettable pop acts unfathomably sitting at the tops of music charts.
