Melody Gardot was new to us. When she came on in a bennie hat and dark glasses I wondered - Oh what have we here. She draped herself on the piano and with over exaggerated movements with her hands and arms although the piano keys were burning her - and then a very melodramatic somber start reminded me of the dear Eric Morecombe - I am playing all the right notes but not necessarily in the right order!!!!! HOWEVER, her next piece moved on and up and was excellent and proved her to be an accomplished player and singer. The concert just got better and her Band (just 5 in total) were absolutely amazing not accompanying her but totally integral to her whole performance. Multi talented each playing more than one instrument and two of them also singing with her. Her voice is outstanding and I would just love to hear her sing a more well known song to show the absolute extremes of her voice. She chatted and made jokes as well as singing as was a very entertaining young lady. The audience obviously new her and gave her a well deserved en-core and standing ovation. Well done Melody.
