For me, 2009’s live performance of the year was Nah Youn Sun’s spell-binding gig in the Vortex with Swedish guitarist Ulf Wakenius. It drew a rave review from one of London’s top 10 blogs, London Jazz (“sheer magic” said its blogmeister, now jazz blogger for the Daily Telegraph, Sebastian Scotney)
For those who didn’t manage to find their way to the Vortex, Nah is returning with Wakenius to London in a more central venue to act as support for Dan Berglund’s Tonbruket: the Swedish band has just released their first CD. I can recommend the CD, though it’s outside the remit of this site. John Bungey of The Times describes it thus: “Understated and playful, there are echoes of early Pink Floyd and Röyksopp – or Brian Eno on a Scandinavian mini-break”. And of course, Nah Youn Sun and Ulf Wakenius, as well as being LKL’s Live Gig of the year 2009 was my runaway winner of Album of the Year 2008 with Voyage.
So make sure you get your tickets for the concert at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on Monday 15th March at 7:30pm
