Have to LOVE the "Stratus" jam....
This comes a week after 3rd Eye Girl posted "Chapter & Verse" from night two of the Dakota shows.
Earlier today, 3rd Eye Girl hipped us to a wonderful cover (ahem) of Joni Mitchell's "A Case Of You" and we can understand quickly how it is a favorite of 3rd eye's and other eyes.
Enjoy it while you can this weekend jam.-DocFB
Diagnosis: What do U think of Dakota 1?
As we tweeted yesterday, the very talented Ana Moura was going to take the stage with PRINCE at the Super Bock Super Rock festival in Portugal.
Here is footage of Prince with Ana performing "A Casa da Mariquinhas" and PRINCE backing her up on guitar. We heard they were also going to perform "Walk In Sands" a new track from his yet to be released in the good ol U.S.A. 20Ten record, but it was not.
For now, enjoy this footage of Prince and Ana performing in Portugal.-Dr.FB
UPDATE: Here is another song below!!!
We just got word that Prince has rehearsed the 3 players: John Blackwell, Rhonda Smith and Renato Neto for 2 weeks now and taught them new and old material alike as well as a few covers. Sounds cool.
Prince is using a smaller crew these days to allow space for the audience to properly hear his favorite players right now.
We are being told that Prince will, of course be featured on guitar throughout the concert but mainly this year his goal is to showcase his sometimes overlooked vocal abilities.
Hence the stripped down vibe of this crew.
As shown on his most recent performance on the Tonight Show, Prince feels he is improving as a vocalist and has taken the time to re-work arrangements to showcase his gift.
Some tunes will just feature Renato on piano and Prince on vocals. He is Prince's favorite pianist and as a fan of his work, it's a treat for him just listening to Renato every night without any audible distraction.
Prince has also been listening alot to new jazz star Esperanza Spalding. He attended her concert in St. Paul, Minnesota recently and she and her impressive band came over to Prince's Paisley Park Studio for a tour and jam session that lasted til sunrise. Now that's hot! He loves to play with her and always teases he will join her band one day when he's good enough. Ha! BTW, she is a must see if you ever y'll get the chance.
In addition to Esperanza, Prince is a big fan of Ana Moura. Her command of an audience is very impressive. She has a strong voice that radiates sensuality. Accompanied by 3 musicians when Prince saw her, Ana was a template as well as Esperanza for Prince's new approach to performance.
Awesome news. Let's hope this concert makes it's way to the United States soon!-Dr.FB
Seems like His Purple Badness has been a very busy man. It's hard to keep up with him, and with rumors circulating we can only wait and see what/where his next move will be.
Rumor has it Prince will be attending The Cannes Film Festival with a very special date. Timeless.....
Prince hit Paris Club 'La Cigale' last night , where he enjoyed a performance by Portuguese Fado singer, Ana Moura. Three concerts in one night at the Montreux Jazz Festival, Ana Moura..humm.....Can you feel it?
Hopefully Prince will hang out with Lenny Kravitz while he's in town. There is never a dull moment when these two get together.
Rumors, Rumors, Rumors..... What's next? Only the purple one knows!
