What a night to remember – made possible by Joan Osborne and the Holmes Brothers when they brought their craft to the intimate surroundings of Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley in Seattle. I’ll call it a fantastic “twofer.”
The Holmes Brothers can still deliver and reach their audience. They started out with some tunes from their latest release, Brotherhood, to a very appreciative crowd. They were then joined on stage by Osborne and her pianist Keith Cotton, to solo on a few of her standards, including “Spider Web.”
The Holmes Brothers then joined in to accompany Osborne on a few more tunes, and they finished the show with her 1995 hit “One Of Us.”
The applause said it all. Yet another stellar show hosted by Jazz Alley.
