On Tuesday I saw Joe Jackson. He played mostly his own stuff, much with the band, but solo on keyboards he also played a New Orleans, Professor Longhair-style version of Joni Mitchell’s “Big Yellow Taxi”.
Last night, about a hundred yards up the road, I saw the impressive Ian Shaw in the Guildhall Lounge. His whole set was solo on keyboards and he played a Mel Tormé- style (with scat singing) version of Joni Mitchell’s “Big Yellow Taxi”.
I’m prepared to bet such a thing has never occurred before in Pompey
I love coincidences.
