I guess a lot of you readers either live around Boston, or will go there in a few hours? What better then, than to go to a concert with Kristin Slipp, who will do both Robert Wyatt and Syd Barrett songs?!
In Boston Globe they write: ".....she’ll perform with local alto saxophone eminence Allan Chase and his quartet, recasting Cole Porter and Rodgers and Hart, as well as putting a jazz spin on psychedelic/art rock songs by Syd Barrett and Robert Wyatt. Then her standards-based duet with pianist Dov Manski will be heard. May 25, 8 p.m. $10. Lily Pad, 1353 Cambridge St., Cambridge. 617-395-1393, www.lily-pad.net".
In the video you can see and hear Slipp with Dagmar Krause, Fred Frith, Chris Cutler, Karla Kihlstedt and Zeena Parkins, as Art Bears in 2010, and right below she does "Smoke gets in your eyes" with Dov Manski.
Anyone familiar with this artist? Any records released?
