Dionne Warwick @ The Sage

Dionne Warwick (vcl); Jeff Lewis (dms); Danny De Morales (bs); Todd Hunter (keys); Sam ? (perc); ?? (pno md). South Bank Sinfonia Strings.
Looking much younger than her 72 years (mind you I was back in row U) the diva celebrating 50 years in show business gave a polished and entertaining performance. The hits came tumbling out - there were many and I remembered every one of them!
Walk On By; Anyone Who Had a Heart; You'll Never Get to Heaven if You Break my Heart (honestly!); I'll Never Fall in Love Again (the magnificent rhyming of pneumonia with phone ya!); This Girl's in Love With You; Say a Little Prayer For Me; Alfie; Heartbreaker (we all sang along on that one!) Do You Know The Way to San José? What The World Needs Now and so on.
Hall One was close to capacity and at the end the lady was awarded a deserved standing ovation. It wasn't jazz but we didn't expect it to be. It was quality pop singing that will perhaps encourage me to dig out my vinyl.
Lance.
