I was saying last weekend how much I enjoyed the performance of Laura Mvula at Victorious – easily the best thing I saw all weekend. I’ve noticed that she’s on BBC4 tonight (8-8.30) in a celebration about Nina Simone. Here’s a taste of Mvula
PS Later tonight on the same channel, Van Morrison’s 70th birthday party on Cyprus Avenue. I read a review of it and I’m sorry to report that he didn’t play “Cyprus Avenue”. Maybe his t-t-tongue got t-t-tired every time he tried to sing it.
