It is always a great occasion when two of your favourite musicians in the world, combine forces on a track and produce moments of magic. Well, in this case, it’s not so much combining forces, as it is one of our favourite artists paying tribute to another of our favourite artists, by reinterpreting one of their classic pieces live, in Spiritual Jazz form.
Super Composer/Drummer Tommaso Cappellato and his band Astral Travel, pay warm homage to multi-instrumentalist and all-round musical genius Kaidi Tatham, covering the classic He Laughs She Cries, from his 2008 In Search of Hope album, released on Freedom School Japan.
Both of these cats are familiar names with the Jazz re:freshed faithful (Kaidi in particular), with both featuring at the live residency and both releasing music on the Jazz re:freshed record label. You can check out Kaidi Tatham’s release (Kaidi’s 5ive) here and Tommaso Cappellato & Astral Travel’s release (Cosm’ethic) here
Back to the tribute. For those of you unfamiliar with the original version of He Laughs She Cries, take a listen…
