North Sea Jazz Festival

4/5: Typhoon good. Mary J Blige started weak, but midway through she suddenly shined, and how! Highlight! D’Angelo impressive.

D’Angelo

4½/5: Second D’Angelo evening at Paradiso. Once again phenomenally good.

D’Angelo

5/5: Upon hearing the first notes it was clear this was going to be an absolute stunning concert! It didn’t; it was even better. Classic!

D’Angelo

4/5: Night concert; concert started at 2 AM. Together with my son Rachid, his first concert ever. Waiting in line for a long time outside of Paradiso (on one of the coldest nights of the year). And (once again) an incredible show!
