english by Google: A bit of heat needed to be able to tolerate even at yesterday's concert by John Scofield on Wuk.
"It's very hot here," said a visibly sweaty John Scofield in German. How right he was! Rain clouds threatened yesterday over the city, they are now given way to intense sunlight. Granted, you can see them in Wuk not much. But it is felt, the heat, indoors and outdoors. Inside, perhaps even more. Not only because a battery of searchlights to provide additional degrees of heat, but also because sveral hundred people standing close together, and because in addition to the stage with John Scofield's band select switch to turn on heat. "Sco", as he has affectionately call his fans, many, as he explains, "old songs" from his new and latest CD, "Piety Street" brought back, and this album consists mainly of interpretations of southern gospel songs. Since then, the guitar needs to whine and beg for spiritual help, as Jon Cleary may will explore with organ, guitar and singing sensation intensities, there must praise the Lord and "Something Got A Hold On Me" sung. For is not utmost vigilance actually announced?
Because that is still shaken well before the break, first heat victim from the hall. A photographer who was standing close to the stage, and is wrinkled by years aged into the open. "I am so hot!" He could see at least Sco. Others, including 2.10 m Gardemaß to see only his, dignified by a fringe of hair framed head. Very young people threaten to crush the dark between sandals and high heels lost or evaporate too. One can did not drink as much as you need to sweat.
Only Sco seems to be the little annoying. Of course, it also runs in heavy torrents of sweat from his head, so it probably Jon Cleary and drummer Ricky Fataar sometimes wear caps and hats, but otherwise brings the music with mitschunkelbaren Hank Williams songs, the audience waving radiant blue phones. Then he heats with rock solos to dance again. The degrees of heat corresponding original sound way, is "Pooh", which is supported by an "air-waving-hand-movement".
And somehow I'm not going on at the sight of the feeling that this Gitarrenpyromane simmers just the right time at right place. Some time ago I talked with him about local and regional music scenes. Yesterday, I stood with him on the Ratshausvorplatz to Music to hear from Armenia, Korea and Austria. And today he is here with hot jazz rock the gospel at the Jazz Fest Wien Vielvölkermusik a To enrich facet. So everything comes together, internationalism on a local basis. "Vienna is a beautiful city. I hope to come back. But now we take a shower once. Two hours. Uh, of course, alone! "
A good idea. Some whisper that waits outside the entrance a group of Finnish sauna master on the audience. Let's see. And what are Cubans from the Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club, which today occur in the Vienna State Opera, say to that? Harald Justin
