VENOSTA, GIOVANN! & SONATA ISLANDS: Nippon Eldorado Kabarett
This is a remarkable item in every respect. Giovanni, with an exceptional band, delivers an increasingly extraordinary programme of After Dinner, Wha Ha Ha and the Haniwa Allstars covers. This is already great music but the Sonata Island’s performances are different enough – and present enough – for me to say that the band makes the material completely their own. Everyone plays like a virtuoso, negotiating a lot of tricky twists and arrangements without showing off - and special plaudits to singer, Sarah Stride’s impressive Japanese. In addition this is a live recording with all the plusses and none of the minuses, sounding as good as any studio recording, just livelier. An astonishing achievement all round. Just buy it. L
