Royal Festival Hall, London.
Paolo Conte returns to the UK for this one London concert as part of the EFG London Jazz Festival. Imagine the voice of Tom Waits and the soul of Cole Porter inhabiting the body of a craggily handsome Italian poet, painter and singer-songwriter. His music blends the heart and soul of jazz with the powerful sounds of the Big Band era, coupled with the rhythms of the tango, taking you on a journey from Buenos Aires dance hall to Louisiana juke-joint. 'No artist I can think of so ingeniously unites elements of jazz music's past and present. Nothing less than magical' (***** The Times)
