Billed as 'The Broadway Blues Musical', Blues in the Night by Sheldon Epps is set in a seedy Chicago hotel in the '30's where three women tell a sizzling story of love and abandonment through the songs of Bessie Smith, Alberta Hunter, Duke Ellington, and other gaints of blues and jazz. Snake (Clarke Peters), who you may recognise as an older less singing and dancing actor of The Wire, reminds of what he used to do when he was in Britain. Carol Woodman you may have seen recently singing at the inauguration of Barack Obama. Debby Bishop is one of the few jazz singers to have imploded stage lights with her voice at her performances. Maria Friedman completes the line up.
Recorded live at the Donmar Warehouse 25 and 26 August 1987. I have never found a commercial release of this video, although the songs were released as a CD. This is a rip of my original VHS recording from its one broadcast with Thames television. The quality is good enough that I still get a chill down my spine when I watch it. Nevertheless you will notice the deterioration that is inevitable in old VHS copies.
