    Katie Melua

    Year: 2012

    Runtime: 1 hr 15 min

    Accomplished singer-songwriter Katie Melua makes her second appearance at the AVO SESSION festival. She presents her new, mysterious and profound album «Secret Symphony». Like the rain of gold and platinum with her earlier albums,
    this album has been at the top of the charts for many weeks. It shows that even superstars have hard times, like Katie Melua with her burnout. Her art was making this crisis into a source of creativity by turning it into new songs. This great music dynamic speaks for the quality of her new works. She mixes pop, jazz and folk intuitively and adeptly, her songs are heartfelt, natural and unpretentious. Pop and poetry don’t get any closer than this - as you will see at this evening at AVO SESSION Basel.

    Khaled

    Year: 2012

    Runtime: 1 hr 14 min

    «Raï» is a folk music form in Algeria. The word means opinion or view, a pointed message to the world. Khaled experienced the danger of spreading that message when the Islamists took over the country in 1986. He was forced to flee at the age of just 26. Khaled continued to develop his music in France. He became a superstar and an important symbol in his homeland, although he was forbidden to perform there. Khaled wants to entertain and to be popular. He says what he thinks and he plays raï the way he wants to, electronically, but also with traditional instruments, western and yet still Maghrebian, in different languages, but most
    of all with a message that is loud and clear.

  • I Can't Stand the Rain

    Ann Peebles

    Year: 1998

    Runtime: 46 min

    This performance was recorded at Belgium's renowned Lokerse Feesten in 1996. As well as the classic 'I Can't Stand The Rain', the concert includes an awesome version of the autobiographical 'St. Louis Woman (With A Memphis Melody)'. She is best known for her inspirational recording of 'I Can't Stand The Rain', a 1974 classic which no less an icon than John Lennon described as "the greatest single ever." That clearly puts Ann Peebles right up there with soul divas like Aretha Franklin and Gladys Knight, and while the amount of her recorded work doesn't match up to theirs, it's hardly quantity that we're counting. This is all about quality and Ann Peebles has that aplenty.

    Antonello Venditti

    Year: 2012

    Runtime: 1 hr 25 min

    Antonello Venditti (born 8 March 1949) is an Italian singer-songwriter who became famous in the 1970s for the social themes of his songs.
    Antonello Venditti was born in Rome, the son of Vincenzino Italo from Campolieto Molise, deputy-prefect in Rome.
    He studied piano in his youth and made his debut in the music world in the early 1970s at the Folkstudio of Rome, together with singers like Francesco De Gregori and Giorgio Lo Cascio. In duo with the former he released in 1972 his first LP, Theorius Campus. The LP scored little success, but Venditti at least made himself noted for the strength of his vocal qualities and for his attention to social issues, evidenced by pieces like Sora Rosa which is sung in Roman dialect. Also in dialect was Roma Capoccia, a declaration of love for his city, which later became one of his most famous songs. Curiously, Venditti refused to sing it for several years, as he considered it not politically or socially "engaged" enough.

    Madredeus

    Year: 2012

    Runtime: 60 min

    The flight distance between Basel and Lisbon is 1672 kilometres, but the distance between the Basel drums and Portuguese fado could be measured in light years. Fado, the music of lower Lisbon, is based on a feeling that the German language cannot even name. Since 1986, Madredeus have spearheaded the long tradition of fado and a woman’s voice was always at the centre, now it is the voice of Beatrix Nunes. The mastermind of the band, guitarist Pedro Ayres

    Magalhães, helps to ensure the future of fado with his compositions, which are not museum pieces, but rather a reflection of the realities of Lisbon in 2012. They perform some classic works as well as new songs at AVO SESSION.

  • Ike Turner and the Kings of Rhythm Live in Concert : North Sea Jazz Festival

    Ike Turner

    Year: 2002

    Runtime: 1 hr 10 min

    In this concert from 2002 the late R&B legend Ike Turner performed highlights from his extraordinary five-decade career.
    Ike Turner, the man widely credited as making the first-ever rock’n’roll record, died in December 2007, at the age of 76.

    One of the most important and influential figures in popular music, he played a key role in the development of rock ’n’ roll, soul and funk music from its early roots in Fifties R&B. Truly multi-talented, as a writer, music scout, arranger, performer and musician, Ike was responsible for a string of classic recordings and hits over the years.

    Recorded at Sun Records back in 1951, his ground-breaking R&B chart topper ‘Rocket 88’ is regarded as being the first rock‘n’roll record ever.

    Teaming up with future wife Tina in the late Fifties, the duo produced some of the most memorable soul and funk records of the Sixties and early Seventies, many of which crossed over into the pop mainstream. Ike’s immense music talent tended to be unfairly overlooked at times in favour of the media’s fascination with his often controversial personal life, such as his stormy relationship with Tina and his notorious abuse of cocaine over many years.

    Always a much-respected figure amongst hip-hop and R&B stars, his musical legacy has since been recognised by the rest of the music community. Ike had made a major comeback in recent years - touring the world and recording a string of acclaimed albums – in 2007 winning the Grammy Award for Comeback Album of The Year for his ‘Rising With The Blues’.

    Ike Turner’s outstanding musicianship is very evident from this concert performance filmed at the 2002 North Sea Jazz Festival which features highlights from his extraordinary five-decade career. The package includes blazing versions of the big hits ‘Nutbush City Limits’, ‘Proud Mary’ and ‘Rocket 88’.

    The 30-minute documentary ‘The Early Years’ chronicles his early days as a music trailblazer in the Fifties, whilst the 18-minute film ‘Memphis Heroes Award’ honours his contributions to popular music.

    M

    Year: 2006

    Runtime: 1 hr 15 min

    Chedid created ‑M- as means of overcoming his shyness on stage and also as a way of distancing his work from that of his father and grandmother. The pseudonym comes from Chedid's first initial but also refers to the similar sounding French word aime, meaning love. The character ‑M- is a superhero, noted for having a playful nature, and recognized for his flamboyant costumes (primarily monochrome suits with slim trousers and long jackets with upward pointed collars) and hair styled into the shape of an M.
    -M- gained international exposure through his recording of the song "Belleville Rendez-vous" for the soundtrack of the 2003 Sylvain Chomet animated film The Triplets of Belleville in both French and English. The song, with lyrics by Chomet and music by Benoit Charest, was nominated for a 2003 Academy Award. The music video for "Belleville Rendez-vous" uses both a live-action depiction of ‑M- and an animated depiction incorporated into footage from the film.
