Tori Amos


I have always been a big fan. Carol and I saw her at Massey Hall on October 29, 1994. I have now spent a week getting to know her music better. In my mind, she is a brilliant vocalist, pianist, and composer. Her live performances hit all three of these sweet spots dead on. You might have to listen more than once to pick up all the subtleties, but it is worth it.

This clip is from her concert at the Montreux Jazz Festival on July 7, 1992.

Update: I have just purchased the live recordings for both the 1991 and 1992 concerts at Montreux. Sounds great in the car - an accident waiting to happen.
